Climate and Energy Summit: integrated thinking for a climate-resilient Europe
27 June at 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
The future warming of the planet will be determined by the actions taken in this decade. The science is unequivocal and there is no more time to waste. Delivery of the European Green Deal will require a re-imagination of the economy across every sector.
The 2023 Climate and Energy Summit will convene a diverse group of leaders who will examine the ways in which the EU can seize the moment and deliver on the imperative of climate neutrality.
Distinguished speakers will analyse the opportunities for Europe to become a world leader in green industry. Issues including supply chain sustainability, the design of the electricity market and the reorientation of capital flows will all be examined in this context.
The summit will also focus on the fundamental role of citizen engagement in the transition. It will address pertinent questions relating to clean jobs; the just transition and European cohesion; and the digital-green nexus as the Union shifts away from a carbon-intensive economy.
One year on from the REPowerEU plan, expert speakers will assess how to accelerate Europe’s decarbonisation pathway and seize the benefits of renewable energy solutions. In the afternoon, we will convene smaller parallel sessions where thought leaders, social actors and entrepreneurs will consider innovative solutions for integrated climate action.
The EU is leading in the advancement of low-carbon technologies and private streams of finance can strengthen market confidence and accelerate their development. In the final session of the summit, thought leaders, social actors, and entrepreneurs will consider how the private sector can advance innovative solutions for integrated climate action.
