KIELTYKA GLADKOWSKI participates in Tech Led Decarbonisation Showcase organized by Tech UK on 29 November 2022.

Organisations of all shapes and sizes and in all sectors are facing big new pressures to decarbonise. Not only is it imperative as the world aims for net zero, but also for business success. Customers now expect businesses to have firm carbon reduction targets in place and clear strategies on how to get there. Investors too are now choosing to put their money into businesses who have strong environmental credentials, and regulation is making businesses disclose their credentials.

Our lawyers will thus participate in the event that aims to help businesses, particularly SMEs, who are new to this and do not know how to measure and reduce their scope 1-3 emissions. This showcase will hear lightning talks from 6 companies who have developed tech solutions and platforms to aid firms in their decarbonisation efforts from establishing baselines to offsetting, to becoming more circular.

– Setting out the drivers for decarbonization;

– Microsoft Lightning Presentation: Microsoft will present on how they help their customers understand energy and emissions data from their use of Microsoft products, particularly those based in the cloud;
