Transparency Task Force – “Accelerating our journey towards a green economy, before it’s too late”

Wednesday 22 May @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Transparency Task Force – “Accelerating our journey towards a green economy, before it's too late"

In general terms the risk of climate change catastrophe has been in the headlines very extensively in the UK and overseas. The symposium will be focusing on how the financial services sector could play an important part in helping to mitigate the risks we may all be exposed to.

The symposium will be covering a range of topics including an important “exposé” on the potential perils of 5G.

As you may be aware, some academics and scientists believe 5G is potentially harmful to the environment.

Some say that:

  • There has been lots of research on 5G by the telecoms companies but very little independent research
  • The frequencies 5G operates on means that it can, in effect, ‘micro-wave’ the cells of plants and animals
  • There is a tension between those that argue there is a massive commercial drive to introduce 5G quickly and those that suggest we should take a much more cautious approach until the science is conclusive either way

It would seem prudent that we should be aware that there might be an issue in relation to 5G so that we can consider the evidence and decide for themselves.

The session about 5G at the event is going to be delivered by Joe St Clair, UK Director of the World Sustainability Forum. Joe has been taking a look at the evidence available and it’s rather interesting to say the least.

We have several other topics being covered including an update on the work of the British Standards Institute who are developing sustainability standards for world-wide application; the Transparency Task Force is pleased to be involved with that project.

We also have a Power Panel for Parliamentarians and Policymakers.
