Ambitions for COP28
Bankers for Net Zero are going to COP28 with two clear ambitions:
1. Demonstrate UK leadership on the global stage
Demonstrating how B4NZ has led the way in accelerating the UK and global economy transition to net zero through our ambitious programmes of work
Continuing to champion the role of banks, business and regulators to play their part in the transition to net zero
2. Showcase Project Perseus
We look forward to showcasing an operational demonstrator of Project Perseus – a programme of work that enables automated and trusted emissions reporting for the UK’s 5.9 million SMEs
In doing so, we hope to gain further support for Project Perseus
