This interactive, virtual roundtable will examine the topic of the energy transition and net-zero emissions through three lenses, with a keynote introduction from Mark Radka of the UN Environment Programme, and participation from Allianz Investment Management, Chatham House, Ipieca, Oil and Gas Climate Initiative, Transition Pathway Initiative, World Business Council for Sustainable Development, World Economic Forum, World Resources Institute and more.
This pre-COP26 UN Global Compact Network UK event will explore the climate mitigation and resilience agendas and the interlinkages between them. Government representatives, experts, and business leaders will discuss their vision of a net zero, climate resilient world, and the actions they are taking to get there.
In the last few years, great strides have been made in satellite detection of methane emissions. There are now a variety of satellites with a range of methane sensors and detection capabilities in orbit and several more planned in coming years. These new satellites will bring greater levels of transparency to methane emissions in both the public and private domains.
The Citizens Energy Congress, taking place virtually on 15-16 June 2021, will bring together a broad spectrum of energy industry professionals, policy makers, investors and civil society. Together, these groups will challenge the concepts and constraints of the existing energy models and foster consensus-driven foundations for a low carbon energy system.
