Speaker information

Yvo de Boer, KPMG, Yvo de Boer is KPMG’s Special Global Advisor, Climate Change & Sustainability (CC&S). In this role, he heads KPMG’s international network of climate change and sustainability consulting businesses, which comprises several hundred sustainability professionals in over 60 countries.As well as leading KPMG’s CC&S agenda Yvo advises corporate leaders on the impacts of rapid environmental, social and political change and how their businesses should respond in order to grasp opportunities and manage risks.He is also focused on exploring on how notions of corporate value are evolving to take account of a corporation’s social and environmental performance as well as financial performance.

In 2015 nations are expected to reach agreement on a global response to climate change. If they succeed, we have some chance of limiting average global temperature increase to 2 degrees Centigrade. If they fail that goal will probably slip beyond our grasp and the international negotiating process could loose all credibility.

The talk will start promptly at 6.00pm and will be followed by Q & A session and a networking reception with drinks and nibbles.
