Nominations open to join our Climate Strategy and Resilience Council

Nominations are now open for 20 techUK members to join our new Climate Strategy and Resilience Council for a three-year tenure.

The Council will drive techUK’s response to the climate crisis and our work to help ensure the sector can respond as well as it can to its impacts.

Primarily, this will mean agreeing the strategic direction, contributing to forward planning, ensuring the programme reflects member priorities and representing the sector at a high level to relevant stakeholders, academics and decision makers.

An initial roundtable with members highlighted a wide-range of member views on the role of techUK in this area, from showcasing the role of technology in cutting carbon and accelerating their deployment, to helping define what net-zero carbon will actually mean for the sector, and how the sector can ready itself for future impacts.

We are also electing the positions of Chair and Vice Chair. You may nominate either yourself or a colleague for either and, in doing so, will automatically nominate yourself for membership of the council.

To nominate yourself or a colleague please complete the form and return to Susanne Baker by 17:00 on Thursday 26 September.

Members can also opt to participate in a wider interest group. This means you will still be kept abreast of activities and relevant news and have the opportunity to participate in future taskforces working on specific time-limited projects. To join this group simply email Susanne Baker.

 

The election timeline is as follows:

26 August Nominations Open

26 September Nominations Close

30 September Elections open (if we receive more nominations than places)

14 October Elections close

21 October Members announced
