James Standley, managing director of Kensa Heat Pumps. James is responsible for delivering customer and shareholder value through Kensa’s manufacturing, field delivery, technical support and NPD activities.

Peter passionately believes in organisations responsibilities to be leaders in their communities on environmental and social issues. Environmental issues in particular are becoming commercial drivers across all sectors, and he sees opportunity in leading the way in the lift industry in the race to net zero.
Shalom Lloyd is the founder and managing director of Naturally Tribal Skincare. Shalom is an award-winning, senior business professional, with over 25 years’ experience in the pharmaceutical industry.
A British-Nigerian with a BSc and MSc in Pharmacy from the Ukrainian Academy of Pharmacy in former Soviet Union, and an MBA from the University of Liverpool, resulting in a cross-cultural background which has enabled her to push for diversity and cultural awareness in the global business place at every opportunity for herself and others.
The discussion Race to Net Zero – Destination or Dream will consider these important questions:
- For manufacturers yet to start on their sustainability journeys, where do they begin?
- Where are some of the quick/easy/big gains to be made?
- What will be the most challenging areas to address to reach net-zero?
- The shift to a greener future will require significant investment in terms of upgrading machinery, training, energy supply and more. How should manufacturers approach financial support/investment?
