今回のセミナーは、変わり続ける低炭素規制制度に取組む企業、ならびに、クリーン技術や再生可能エネルギー部門での経営や、投資をお考えの全ての企業の経営者の方々に関心をお持ちいただけると思います。
このセミナーでは、英国における現状や規制の枠組みに焦点をしぼります。
特に、
・英国政府の気候変動への対応から生じた新たな課題について。
(例:炭素削減義務が生む規制の問題)
・気候変動やそれに関連する規制がもたらす成長・投資の好機について。
ここでいう好機とは、規制から生ずるもの(例:英国政府による、直接、間接的な再生可能エネルギーやクリーン技術部門への支援)及び商業的なもの(例:ロンドンを基点とした活気あるベンチャー資本や未公開株式コミュニティの再生可能エネルギーやクリーン技術部門への関心の高まり)の双方です。
講演者は、この部門の専門家や関係者の代表的な方々です。
このセミナーは、在英商工会議所のご協力により、SJ Berwinの主催で行われます。
またこのレクチャーシリーズは、日本航空の温かいご支援により実施されています。
