Leading ESG, financial advisory and EV mobility organisations club together to tackle financing and adoption of net zero in business
Wednesday 3rd November
This week’s pivotal COP26 climate change conference in Glasgow is positioning climate finance and ESG as a critical solution for a sustainable and net zero future.
With this theme at the top of the global sustainability agenda, exciting events startup, Reset Connect, has just announced the launch of its first exhibition and trade show – Reset Connect London 2022, alongside Event Founding Partners Tenet Group and Gluon Mobility Ventures.
Reset Connect London 2022 will be the UK’s largest sustainability ecosystem and ESG investment gathering, forming part of London Climate Action Week in June. The event has a simple mission – to accelerate the transition to a green economy, by addressing how net-zero innovation and technology will be paid for and implemented. Attracting low carbon solutions and providers, start ups and innovators, corporate sustainability professionals, investors and financial advisers, the event facilitates collaboration and green financing within the business community.
Duncan Reid, Co-founder and CEO at Reset Connect, said “With the momentum the UK has created around COP26, there is an exceptional opportunity to build on this into next year and beyond to ensure business plays its part in embracing net zero if we are to meet the 1.5 degree target. These prominent organisations from across the ESG, investment and financial services space have identified Reset Connect London 2022 as a place to build cross-sector, transformational partnerships needed to deliver real change. We are incredibly excited and proud to be working with Tenet and Gluon, companies dedicated to accelerating adoption of ESG principles. We look forward to meeting many more partners at COP26 and welcoming many more brands as we move into the new year!”
Warren Vickers, Managing Director at Tenet, said: “The integration of ESG into financial planning decisions is rapidly accelerating, yet navigating this new and complex market can be challenging for financial advisers and the regulator is increasingly scrutinising the duty to consumers when it comes to transparency on ESG-related claims. We’re continually expanding our support to financial advisers to help their clients achieve their sustainability and financial goals, and are soon to launch a panel of ESG options our network members and directly authorised clients can trust. Therefore we’re delighted to be part of Reset Connect London 2022 which will form a cornerstone of London Climate Action Week next year and provides the ideal platform to educate the financial advice market on the current and future ESG market.”
Per Regnarsson, CEO at Gluon Mobility Ventures and Managing Partner at Gluon Group, said: “At Gluon, our driving focus is to find and fill the investment gaps in the clean energy, mobility and infrastructure markets, to accelerate the transition to net zero. Reset Connect perfectly aligns with this mission, so it is only right that we support their launch event at the very top level. Alongside our existing EV themes, a key objective for Gluon this year is to seek policy support for the hydrogen economy, in a similar way to how hydrocarbon and renewable energy subsidies have facilitated scale and adoption. Furthermore, we are excited to identify the next opportunities where our financing will make a real and lasting impact, and believe this is the place to do that in 2022.”
