Family Business Roundtable Invitation: “The journey to net zero”

Date: Thursday, 5 October 2023
Venue: Bowcliffe Hall Bramham, Wetherby, LS23 6LP

In conjunction with Clarion Solicitors, Mazars and Family Business UK, Bartlett is pleased to invite you to an exclusive roundtable discussion with other family business leaders in the region.

The journey to net zero is an extensive one, spanning years or decades into the future. This transition of our economy towards sustainability will undoubtedly mark one of the most significant transformations in business and industry for our generation.

Family-owned businesses, known for their long-term generational outlook and strong adherence to family values, are particularly inclined to focus on ‘doing the right thing.’

The need to address global warming has reached a critical point, urging both businesses and governments to take decisive actions. Avoiding the worst impacts of climate change demands a swift and profound overhaul of every sector in the global economy, necessitating a reduction of global emissions by half before 2030 and achieving ‘net zero’ carbon emissions by 2050.

Whilst the journey will be challenging, family-owned businesses need not face it alone.

At this event we are joined by Edward Whittle, Head of Climate Change, Whitby Seafoods and Dr Sally Uren OBE, Chief Executive, Forum for the Future, who will both share their experiences and perspectives.

Following the presentations, Neil Davy CEO of Family Business UK will facilitate a discussion to better understand how the issues above will impact local family businesses.

We very much hope you can join us for this lively and relevant discussion.


Edward Whittle – Head of Climate Change, Whitby Seafoods.
Dr Sally Uren – CEO of Forum for the Future.
Neil Davy – CEO of Family Business UK (Chair).
