Combating Climate Change as an Integral Aspect of Energy Demand, Production and Transmission

January 19, 2021 5:00 PM CET REGISTER

The energy sector is a key contributor to ongoing climate changes, accounting for more than two-thirds of global greenhouse gas emissions. This means energy must be at the heart of any solution to this worldwide challenge. Today, countries are taking bolder action on climate change and overall investment in clean energy innovation is on the rise. At the same time, despite a record drop in global emissions this year, all of this is far from enough to bring emissions into a decisive decline. In this session, top energy leaders will chart a path for global businesses to accelerate clean energy transitions and reach climate goals. Our speakers will touch upon such topics as:

  • How global energy corporations are going about combating climate change

  • On the way to renewables: How the world's leading corporations are making their way to a more sustainable future

  • Commercial and financial underpinnings of the global transition to renewables

  • European vs American approaches to tackling climate change: Is switching to renewables more efficient than investing in lower-emission energy technologies?
