COP26 Debrief: Global warming – Code Red for Humanity?

Friday 26 November 2021 - 26/11/21

Online

A Code Red for Humanity…

World leaders will gather in Glasgow to discuss global warming and hopefully agree to secure global net zero emissions by 2050 and keep global warming to 1.5C.

According to the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, some climate change trends are now ‘irreversible for centuries to millennia’. The UN Secretary–General António Guterres said the report was nothing less than “a code red for humanity. The alarm bells are deafening, and the evidence is irrefutable”.

Against this backdrop we will review the outcomes of COP26. What tangible progress was made? In particular, what does it mean for my business? How can we accelerate what we are doing in our patch in the Thames Valley? Does COP26 change the path we are on when it comes to global warming?

These are just some of the questions we will be addressing in this session with the help of a distinguished panel of speakers including:

Mark Dodwell and Rishi Madlani from NatWest. NatWest are one of the major sponsors of COP26 and they have made a multi £billion commitment as an organisation to environmental sustainability over the next decade. Mark is Head of Clean Transport Propositions and Rishi is Head of Climate and Sustainable Finance.

Chris Walkingshaw, Operations Director from Motorsport UK. Chris is responsible for the Motorsport UKs Sustainability Strategy.

Professor Bill Collins from the University of Reading. Bill will give a perspective on how meaningful COP26 has been in terms of the bigger picture of reducing emissions and managing climate change.

About the speakers:

Mark Dodwell, Director, NatWest – Climate Propositions

Mark is a senior member of NatWest’s dedicated Climate Propositions team addressing the challenge of de–carbonising businesses in the UK. By working across NatWest the Climate Propositions team will develop and deliver a full spectrum of solutions with a focus on Carbon Tracking, Clean Transport, Clean Energy, Clean Buildings and Green Finance

Rishi Madlani

Rishi is Head of Sustainable Finance and Just Transition for NatWest Group which encompasses the bank’s activities supporting the transition to a lower carbon economy and increasing funding to areas with a wider social purpose.

Chris Walkingshaw, Operations Director and Sustainability Lead, Motorsport UK

Chris has a background in property and facilities management and in his role as Operations Director is responsible for the Motorsport UK Sustainability Strategy along with overseeing its building operations and IT business systems. Chris has worked in the motorsport industry for 15 years and as echoed in the Motorsport UK strategy firmly believes sport has a vital role to play in climate change. Previously, Chris has been responsible for delivering projects for testing low carbon vehicle propulsion systems and installing one of the UK’s largest community owned solar installations.

Professor Bill Collins, Professor of Climate Processes, University of Reading

Bill is Professor of Atmospheric Chemistry and Earth System Modelling at the University of Reading. He researches the effects of different greenhouse gases and pollutants on climate and the Earth System. A particular research focus is on how to compare the effects of different climate pollutants on different timescales. He has been a lead author on the last two IPCC reports, specifically chapters addressing greenhouse gases and how sensitive climate is to them.
