Over the summer of 2022, we have witnessed first-hand the trilemma that is shaking the fundamentals of how the UK functions to meet societal needs: energy supply & security, the astronomical increase in energy costs and the impacts of climate change.
Dire warnings about the cost of “doing business” as energy bills rise fourfold this autumn are everywhere. Swathes of businesses are expected to go under. Tinkering with tariffs are unlikely to benefit the bottom line or provide long-term resilience and there is no silver bullet to fix this pervasive problem. What’s needed is a rapid transition to a low carbon economy that demands significantly less energy, and energy generated from a suite of renewable and sustainable sources, preferably geographically close to the demand.

Joining Head of Business at ICAEW, Simon Gray, in this webinar are ICAEW members and passionate advocates of change to a low carbon economy: Paul Adderley, Founding Director of Beyond Green, an award-winning B Corp, and Chris Trigg, Managing Director at OnGen Ltd.
Using case studies and real-life examples we will discuss:
