Going forward an exclusive event on Net Zero is planned in December.

With the theme Mainstreaming NET-ZERO: Innovation, Growth and Transition, the ET Net Zero Summit would focus on:

1. Innovation
The target of achieving net zero emissions by 2050 requires deep cuts in emissions in sectors where decarbonisation is a complex challenge, such as heating, transport, cement and steel industries, aviation, and food. This calls for much faster innovation. Most technologies required to achieve net zero emissions already exist in varying degrees of maturity but Innovation in this context refers to fast deployment rather than the invention of brand-new ideas.
2. Growth
Rapidly growing number of national governments, local government and business leaders are making commitments to reach net-zero emissions within their jurisdictions or businesses. To grow, Policy, investment and behaviour need to shift.
3. Transition
To succeed with the transition to a net-zero society is by collaborating across industries and sectors, societies and borders – taking action together and scaling solutions, advocating for policy changes and leading by example.

The upcoming Net Zero summit aims to assist businesses towards more environment friendly practices by tracking and reducing emissions through Net Zero.

The summit will convene leaders from government, business, international organizations and civil society along with a diverse group of experts and innovators to initiate, accelerate and scale-up entrepreneurial solutions to tackle climate change and advance sustainable development.

The deliberation at the summit will help to understand the steps to net zero, learn from climate leaders globally and implement effective measures in your organisation.
