Panel - Responsible Finance & Manufacturing Industry

Moderator: Martina Bachler

The transformation of industrial production towards carbon neutrality will necessitate major investments in R&D and new technologies. Some say that the "smart money" is already pouring into climate-conscious trailblazers both amongst established industry leaders and innovative start-ups, and that these first movers are seeing significant upsides in their businesses while old, polluting installations and technologies are fast becoming obsolete stranded assets.

Panel - Clean Energy

Moderator: Martina Bachler

Energy lies at the heart of our climate crisis.

Science, politics, business, and technology are in an ongoing conversation to ensure a smooth transition away from fossil fuels, but the debate is marked by fundamental controversies: How green is nuclear energy? Are massive investments in the natural gas industry as a "bridge technology" reasonable? How do we address the significant social impacts of CO2 taxes on the most vulnerable groups? Is carbon capture and storage feasible and safe at scale?
