November 1, 2021

Freeman CEO, Bob Priest-Heck and leaders from across different parts of the events industry will be at COP26 to introduce a comprehensive “Net Zero Carbon Events Pledge.”

Freeman, a leader in global events, will join more than 150 businesses from across the sector, and all regions of the world, in the Net Zero Pledge which commits to:

  • Before the end of 2023, publish their organization’s pathway to achieve net zero by 2050 at the latest, with an interim target in line with the Paris Agreement’s requirement to reduce global GHG emissions by 50% by 2030.
  • Collaborate with partners, suppliers and customers to drive change across the value chain.
  • Measure and track Scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions according to industry best practice.
  • Report on progress at least every two years

“At Freeman, we recognize the need to accelerate towards global net-zero emissions and for the events industry to play its part in helping to deliver on the goals,” said Freeman CEO, Bob Priest-Heck. “It’s imperative that we, as an industry, work together to minimize our carbon footprint now, and focus on the long-term to drive meaningful progress.”

The session at COP26 will be freely available to view on November 10, 2021 at 11:00am ET. When available, information on accessing the session will be available here.
