The 2019 amendments to the Climate Change Act, to legislate for net-zero emissions by 2050, will require every sector to make significant change. Britain is the first country to adopt this target, and policy makers will be turning their attention to each industry in turn and asking what they will do to achieve the statutory target.

For the TV industry, this will mean adapting our systems, processes and strategies. But strengthening our industry to withstand the economic risks of climate change is no easy ask, particularly when a pandemic shows up – raising the likelihood of another recession.

Despite the gloomy economic forecast – is there hope and opportunity to be found in our future? As we emerge from the global lockdown – do we have the opportunity to build back better?

Join our experts as they discuss the risks and opportunities facing the television and broadcasting industry as we start our journey to net-zero. How should the industry ensure resilience when there is a change in climate culture, and a shift in public values, and what, ultimately, might the creative implications be?

Speakers:

Tricia Duffy – Strategic Advisor, albert (Moderator)
