We are delighted to host the next webinar in our series: Carbon Pricing: Gaining a Competitive Edge in a Climate-Constrained World.

Please join us for a conversation with Unilever and Ecofys about best practices for integrating a price on carbon. 

Unilever is committed to being “carbon positive” by 2030, which includes sourcing 100% of energy from renewable sources across all operations.  This investment in clean energy is funded in large part by the internal price they placed on their emissions of CO2.  We’ll hear anecdotes and lessons learned from their experience integrating a price for carbon.

Ecofys, a Navigant company, recently released (together with the Generation Foundation and CDP) two practical guides for carbon pricing. They will share highlights from these reports that provide guidance on designing and implementing an internal carbon pricing approach.

  • Thomas Lingard, Global Director, Climate & Environment, Unilever
  • Sabina Nealon, Finance Director – Sustainability, Unilever
  • Roger Seabrook, VP Finance Marketing & Sustainability, Unilever
  • Long Lam, Senior Consultant, Ecofys
  • Moderator: Alzbeta Klein, Director and Global Head, Climate Business, IFC
