In conjunction with Clarion Solicitors, Mazars and Family Business UK, Bartlett is pleased to invite you to an exclusive roundtable discussion with other family business leaders in the region.

The journey to net zero is an extensive one, spanning years or decades into the future. This transition of our economy towards sustainability will undoubtedly mark one of the most significant transformations in business and industry for our generation. Family-owned businesses, known for their long-term generational outlook and strong adherence to family values, are particularly inclined to focus on ‘doing the right thing.’

The need to address global warming has reached a critical point, urging both businesses and governments to take decisive actions. Avoiding the worst impacts of climate change demands a swift and profound overhaul of every sector in the global economy, necessitating a reduction of global emissions by half before 2030 and achieving ‘net zero’ carbon emissions by 2050. A growing number of leading companies, governments and investors have committed to net zero, and are embracing this opportunity not only to mitigate climate change but also to drive innovation, enhance competitiveness, and foster resilient growth.
