The Climate Ready Academy is hosting, a partnership between Skillnet Ireland and 20FIFTY Partners, will address how businesses can positively impact the environment and meet sustainability targets, while maintaining growth.

The masterclass, A New Business Model: How leading European companies are transforming their business models to drive growth and drive down their impact on climate and nature, will be hosted by broadcaster Anton Savage and will take place next Thursday, at 1pm.
