Centre director clicks with his audience on the transition to low carbon business

Date: 22 Mar 2011
Speaker(s): Andy Gouldson
Venue: Greenhouse, Leeds

Andy Gouldson, Director of CCCEP (Leeds), presented research findings on pathways to low-carbon business.

Members of the 80-strong audience, of businesspeople, practitioners, activists and academics, were given the chance to vote on the appeal of a range of low carbon investment opportunities using real time `clickers’.

The data will feed into a wider study which looks at the factors affecting investment in low carbon options, and it compares whether decision makers are more sensitive to the up-front costs, the subsequent pay-backs, the risks, the demands on management time, the impacts on reputation and so on.
