This event has been designed for you as a busy director or senior manager, faced with the growing challenge of climate change.

You’ll be concerned about the climate crisis - the evidence and your experience tells you there is a problem. And you’ll know the direction this is taking business – low-carbon, greening supply chains and shareholder pressures to divest. But what does it mean for your business? This session will introduce you to the Climate Solutions programme. Designed in Scotland, the programme will help you turn the climate challenge into solutions and business opportunities, with potential to improve your bottom line, stay ahead of your competition and enhance the company’s reputation.

You’ll come away with a changed view of the climate challenge, and with confidence that the Climate Solutions programme will help you identify climate opportunities and solutions. 

With a modest commitment of time, you’ll learn about the basics of climate change and how Climate Solutions fits with strategic and day-to-day management. The result will be a more profitable, lower carbon, more resilient business, ahead of the competition in responding positively to the climate crisis.

Event format:

12pm Networking / lunch
12.15 How Climate Solutions can help your business.
1.15 Q & A
1.30 Networking

Speaker and the programme
Mike Robinson devised and has led the Climate Solutions project since early 2018. The programme contains four online modules and a workshop. Mike has brought together a team to give you the confidence to develop climate solutions based on a solid understanding of the climate change.

The programme has been developed by bringing together management, climate and IT expertise, supported by Scottish Government as a contribution to Scotland’s Climate Change Plan.

The coalition was instrumental in delivering the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009, the Climate Justice Fund and the subsequent 2019 Climate Emissions Bill. 
He currently sits on the Scottish Government’s Air Passenger Duty Forum, the Boards of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland & Transform Scotland, Scotrail’s stakeholder advisory forum, the Vacant & Derelict Land taskforce and Perth City Development Board. He was an inaugural grant panel member of the Climate Challenge Fund and the 2020 Business Leaders' Group.

He co-chairs the Farming for a 1.5C World enquiry and recently hosted a climate emergency summit with more than 35 organisations to identify suitable responses and to inform government thinking.
