St Edmund Hall is delighted to announce an exciting new public seminar series: ‘Conversations in Environmental Sustainability: beyond greenwashing’. Each term the seminar will bring together leading thinkers and decision-makers from academia, business, government and NGOs to look beyond greenwashing. They will examine a specific issue related to environmental sustainability, exploring how to effectively marry environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals with financial returns, innovation and other business imperatives.

Our inaugural seminar explores ‘Where are the innovations in renewable energy?’ on Friday 10 February 2023 at 17:00-19:15 and is kindly sponsored by Ninety One. Hosted by Professor Baroness Willis, CBE, Principal of St Edmund Hall, Professor of Biodiversity, University of Oxford, a panel of experts will each speak individually before engaging with each other in a discussion. We are pleased to welcome panelists: David Bryon: CFO, First Light Fusion, Carlos Monreal: CEO, Plastic Energy Ltd, William Rowe: Founder & CEO, Octopus Hydrogen, Professor Richard Willden: Tidal and wind energy, St Edmund Hall and Department of Engineering, University of Oxford.

Since 2019, St Edmund Hall has been committed to being recognised as one of the greenest and most environmentally sustainable colleges in Oxford and the establishment of this new sustainability seminar is also critical to this mission. The Hall aims to facilitate forum for considered honest, solution-based responses to the many global environmental sustainability challenges as well as improving our own environmental impact.

The first seminar is a free public event open to all on a first-come-first-served basis.
