THE FUTURE OF THE ENVIRONMENT


Following the success of our Creating The Future Conference in 2018, we are organising a series of much smaller scale events which we are calling Future Forums. As well as hearing from three inspirational speakers, there will be much more time allowed for questions and debate.

Hosted by Huntsman at their club room in Savile Row, this Future Forum will explore The Future of the Environment.  The event is designed for interaction and debate between experts and those attending.

Details of our two exceptional speakers are provided below.  

If you are interested in attending a Future Forum, please get in touch with your Private Banker.

TEN THINGS THAT JAMES, MARK AND GABRIELLE THINK WOULD HELP YOU TO ADDRESS CLIMATE CHANGE

Investment

  • Audit your investments for unpriced climate risk and missed opportunities to make ‘climate clean’ money

  • Align your portfolios with the Paris climate goals


Business

  • If you own a company or are on a company board, check whether you have a good climate strategy. Is your company contributing to the solution or is it just adding to the problem?

  • See if you can make your company carbon neutral - it costs less than 2% of pre tax profit

  • Transportation to work is the second largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Consider allowing your employees to work from home and telecommute several days a week

 
Philanthropy

  • For maximum impact leave the ‘low-hanging fruit’ alone. Look for hard things that need to happen and that are not being supported enough by others

  • Find the climate champions that are already being the most effective and give them what they need


Everyone

  • Change the narrative: tell everyone you know including the sceptics that climate change is real, serious, and ripe with both unpriced risks and untapped opportunities

  • Make a nuisance of yourself, especially if you are younger. It is definitely working!

  • Forego fossil fuels and invest in the change by divesting from oil stocks and investing in companies practicing carbon capture and storage
