The Big Picture: Transforming to the Low Carbon “Circular” City

The Circular economy is a requisite to a clean and low-carbon city of the future. This shift will create wholesale changes to how buildings are built – from the materials that are produced through to how they are used and equipped. The big question remains, how will this transition impact ‘City Life’ for both commercial and personal purposes, and how technology can enable this transformation?

How technology can help companies across the food value chain deliver on climate change commitments

Where are food producers seeing technology help in maximising food production while reducing emissions and environmental damage? Which emerging tools and technologies can help CPGs better trace produce through their supply chains and meet their climate change goals? These are big questions that need to be front of mind in the race to net-zero. So where should investors be putting their money, and how can we accelerate the adoption of technology across the food system to create real scalable and sustainable impact?

Sustainable Digital Infrastructure in Designing a Carbon-Neutral City

Redesigning urban infrastructure for interoperable, shared, and connected cities for sustainable zero emission buildings, transport, and industry is key to reducing emissions. Achieving this requires urban redesign, regulation and new policy setting to incentivize and change behaviour. How can increased physical and digital connectivity help to boost resilience to both health and climate shocks, whilst improving urban sustainability and liveability?

Fireside Chat: Technology, Collaboration and Innovation – How business can help deliver a low-carbon society

At the upcoming COP26 climate conference, governments will be asked to come forward with robust 2030 emissions reductions targets that align with reaching net zero by mid-century.

To achieve these targets, the public and private sectors must work together. Policymakers must remove obstacles and provide incentives to encourage the energy transition and the adoption of cleaner technologies. The private sector must provide the solutions to enable a low-carbon society.

In this frank and candid fireside chat, learn of the technologies – both existing and future – needed to bring about a low-carbon society, as well as some of the challenges involved in achieving the energy transition.
