Transition to Zero Pollution initiative cross-disciplinary conversations
Join us at the first event in a new series hosted by the Transition to Zero Pollution initiative’s Sustainable Resources and Zero Waste theme champions. This event will begin with a talk from Dr Simone Cenci from the Business School on ‘What do companies do to lower their environmental impact?’.
The aim of this series is to bring together colleagues from across College to encourage cross-disciplinary collaboration and build an understanding of the work going on in other Faculties. This will be a chance to hear about work going on in the Business School and to discuss key challenges that need input from scientists and engineers as well as what the Business School can offer to science and engineering problems. The talk will last around 20 minutes and the rest of the event will be for discussion.
Joining the event
This will be an in person event, taking place in room 414 in the Roderic Hill Building. Staff from all Faculties are welcome to attend. Please contact Alex Berry to register

About the Transition to Zero Pollution initiative
Transition to Zero Pollution is one of the first initiatives of Imperial College London’s new Academic Strategy. The initiative captures Imperial’s vision to transform the way we think about pollution, bringing together ideas around resource management, health and environmental impacts, socio-economic and human behaviour in a ‘whole system’ approach. Imperial are building on work being done to tackle greenhouse gas emissions and deliver net zero carbon, and going beyond that to build a sustainable zero pollution future.
