Why ESG Executives must Attend Sustainability LIVE Net Zero

Sustainability & ESG executives have the opportunity to hear the world’s best sustainability leaders as they present and discuss the future of net zero

These days, Sustainability LIVE is more than just a conference. Since its founding, the audience has been almost overwhelming as many business professionals seek answers to their companies’ questions. 

As net zero is perhaps the primary challenge of our time, this conference doubles down on decarbonisation, the strategies put in place, and the mechanisms to analyse, report and act on emissions through data and analytics. 

Distinguished speakers share the nuances of net zero 

While we have a whole host of speakers at Sustainability LIVE Net Zero, attending from across the globe and a diverse pool of businesses, there are some key personalities joining the show from the world’s leading companies. 

Kristen Siemen, CSO at General Motors: Having previously spoken in the Sustainability LIVE New York virtual event, Siemen will be available in London to bring the perspective of a leading automotive name. GM has a critical role to play in shaping a net zero mobility landscape, and is capable of providing the necessary research and development, and engineering expertise, to influence an industry evolution. 

Thomas Blood, CS Sustainability Leader at Amazon Web Services (AWS): Looking at the climate change through a technology lens, Blood brings AWS’ insights to the show as it facilitates major transitions through data applications, cloud computing, all to bring businesses into the modern world. 

Virginie Helias, CSO of Procter & Gamble: Helias will shed light on how consumer goods companies can influence environmental impact. While P&G ensures responsible manufacturing and sourcing, it also fosters sustainable habits among its five billion consumers. She will share insights on innovating products for a greener home and empowering consumers as part of the sustainability solution.

Anisa Kamadoli Costa, CSO at Rivian: On behalf of a major influencer in the electric vehicle (EV) sector, Costa will join the emobility panel discussion to showcase the potential of electrification in an evolving world. The panel is called The Future of Electric Cars in a Net Zero World, and you can find out more HERE

Chris Shanahan, VP of Global Sustainability for Supply Chain Operations at Thermo Fisher Scientific: He will focus on the topic of supply chain and procurement from the perspective of the American analytics instruments supplier, which also offers life science solutions, specialty diagnostic equipment, pharmaceutical and biotechnology services. 

Fredrika Klarén, Head of Sustainability Polestar: The Swedish carmaker is committed to true climate information sharing, which is where Klarén’s role comes into play. She will also join the EV panel to put forward the strategy of Polestar as it delivers new and exciting vehicles while championing sustainable practices. 

Must-see panels at Sustainability LIVE Net Zero

Net Zero Travel & Tourism: While digital working has become the norm, corporations are still required to travel. Conversely, the travel sector undergoes an incredible transformation effort in the face of climate change, decarbonising global operations with multiple nuanced factors. The Net Zero Travel & Tourism panel will impact industries two-fold, whether the audience avidly supports hospitality or runs a travel business themselves.

Day 1 | 12.00pm - 12.40pm 

The Future of AI in Sustainability: Experts from AVEVA, Sercom, and the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) will share insight into artificial intelligence (AI) and its applications in corporate sustainability.
