Opening Plenary Session

Making Global Progress on the Energy Transition

- Together Towards a Net-Zero Future

The global energy landscape is rapidly changing while the pressure to phase out fossil fuels is increasing with rising temperatures globally. Moving decarbonisation efforts forward will only be possible with a concerted effort. This session focused on how governments and businesses can team up to tackle the triple challenge. What can we expect from this year´s climate negotiations at COP28 and how can businesses join forces in “coalitions of the ambitious” to make sure there is significant advancement to achieve global climate goals? How is North America manifesting its leadership role in the long term?
