This October ICAEW will hold a five-day virtual summit of events, videos, podcasts, and articles to help chartered accountants act on climate. This is the first such summit bringing members from across the profession together on the issue of climate change.
The event aims to support members, our wider communities and students to help them look at climate change now and into the future. The programme covers an array of areas from governance to personal leadership. As well as live session each day, we have a whole host of supporting content to ensure you gain practical insights to build a more resilient future. Please see the programme tab for full information.
This event is free for ICAEW members, students and members of the ICAEW Sustainability and Climate Change Community. For more information or to join the community please click here. Please note you may need to wait 24 hours after subscribing to the Community before you can book to attend.
Delegates will be sent links to all of the sessions just before Climate Summit week. Should you experience any difficulties booking onto the event, please go to our events support page - how to book.
