The 8th annual Sustainability Week focuses on helping businesses become sustainable faster. We are the independent guide to sustainability, helping our audience cut through the noise and supporting them as they achieve sustainability goals and reach outcomes with actual business value. We help businesses, policymakers, financiers, investors, NGOs and others achieve sustainability goals, faster. Join 1,000+ in-person attendees, 4,500+ virtual attendees, 300 speakers and 50 exhibitors coming together from March 29th to 31st at the Business Design Centre, London, and online.

Join Rohitesh Dhawan at the panel discussion on 'Creating a stratgey for hard-to-abate sectors', discussing how the heavy-emitting sectors can get a handle on emissions reduction, how much can businesses do themselves and what do they need from other stakeholders. The panel will also explore how technology can help decarbonise hard-to-abate sectors whilst remaining competitive while decarbonising.
