IoD Online & NIE Networks: Green Recovery Forum

19 Aug 2021
Online, Online
The economic recovery from COVID-19 presents new challenges for large parts of the world. As we recover, the decisions we make today will either lay the foundation for clean growth or lock-in polluting emissions for decades. We must embrace the opportunities offered by new, clean technology. We need to build back better. 

The IoD & NIE Networks Green Recovery Forum will explore and showcase exciting new sectors that offer business opportunities to Northern Ireland.

For the second installment of this series, we will be focusing on how the Public Sector is adapting to achieve Net-Zero with the CEOs of NI Water, Translink and the NI Housing Executive.
