Making Sense of Net Zero
Calendar of Events
Beyond COP26: Remaking the global economy
Many believe the drive for net zero is an opportunity for a just transition to a fairer global economy. A just transition is much more than creating jobs for former coal miners. What does net zero mean for economic growth and prosperity? Does it change the dynamics of the values guiding business and policymaking. Is stakeholder, rather than shareholder, capitalism the answer? How do business leaders and policymakers ensure the drive for net zero has a positive impact also on nature, health and society more generally?
Why technology is at the heart of the net zero revolution
The energy transition and the move to net zero will only be possible if we employ the very latest digital technologies, whether it is to balance energy systems, manage cyber security, or forecast the output of renewable energy systems. It will be the biggest challenge yet for the global technology sector to co-ordinate efforts, collect and share data, and merge physical and digital realms. Day 3 will examine the opportunities and challenges in integrating digital transformation with the energy transition.
How business can drive climate action
Increasing numbers of companies are going or pledging to go carbon neutral. Leading global companies will explain what they are doing, why they are working to remove emissions from their operations and supply chains. What are the challenges? How do companies pay for such a transition? How do they bring on board staff and shareholders? What are the rewards? And how companies can use their experiences to lead and drive policy and action, rather than waiting for a clear steer from government and policymakers.
Why net zero makes economic sense
It makes economic sense for countries and companies to shift from a reliance on fossil fuels to renewable energies, and to push for net-zero emissions throughout supply chains. Leading policy, finance and business experts will examine the economics of the clean energy transition and demonstrate why it makes sense to invest in this change rather than supporting the old order.
