Climate Network Think-In

Bankside is championed for its distinct character and for thinking differently – why should this be any different when it comes to the climate crisis?

For Earth Day 2023 we’re hosting our Climate Network Think-In to bring Banksiders together as we explore, learn and share ideas for driving climate action. The theme for Earth Day this year is ‘Invest in our Planet’ – encouraging us to think about how we use our resources to take action on climate change. Whether that’s how we invest our time, our interests, our skills, or our finances.

We’ll hear a short presentation from each of our speakers with the chance to explore these topics in more depth through a Panel Discussion and Q&A. There will then be an opportunity to share your own ideas and explore opportunities to collaborate with local businesses in our breakout session.

Read on to meet the speakers, view the details for the event and explore the agenda.


Meet the speakers:

Giorgia Antonacci, ESG Manager, PensionBee

  • Why should we pay closer attention to our pensions when it comes to investing in the future? In 2023 PensionBee launched their Impact Plan to invest in companies finding solution to global health inequalities, supporting underserved communities and prioritising social and climate action.

Hettie Wood, Sustainability Coordinator, tp bennett

  • What is the difference between redeveloping rather than rebuilding? Find out how architecture can help us to rethink our spaces and how we can invest in buildings to meet our needs for both now and in the future.

Robert Franklin, Lead Carbon Footprinting Consultant, Eight Versa

  • How can emissions mapping help us to invest in a Better Bankside? Explore the emissions profile of the Business Improvement District and the radical realities that can help us to reimagine Bankside.

Johanna Sutton, Principle Policy and Programme Manager, Climate Change, Greater London Authority

  • How can investing in our buildings help to decarbonise emissions from energy? The GLA is supporting businesses to reduce energy through the Mayor of London’s Business Climate Challenge – reducing emissions and providing cost savings to businesses.
