The Global Race to Zero Summit will be one of the biggest virtual climate events in 2021.
The race is on but we need to sprint… With global climate talks fast approaching and time running out to prevent the most disastrous impacts of climate change, now is the time to act.
The Summit will explore the opportunities that emerge from taking action on climate change and provide a clear pathway forward for governments, citizens and companies.
Taking place just 10 days before the G20 meeting in Rome, on 30-31 of October, and in the lead up to the critical COP26 meeting in Glasgow from 31 October–12 November, this event will be instrumental in influencing ambitious global action.
The Summit will provide answers to the following questions, in advance of the G20 meeting and COP26 climate negotiations taking place in November:
- Exactly how urgently do we need to get to net zero? Updated timelines based on the latest modelling.
- What role should governments play? Is truly ambitious action on climate change achievable and how?
- How easily can we electrify everything?
- What is the magnitude of the economic and employment opportunities offered by renewables?
- How can we enlist companies and local governments to join the Race to Zero Campaign?
- How much of a role will renewable hydrogen, ammonia and metals play?
- What does the world look like in 10, 20 and 30 years, when powered by renewables?
The Global Race to Zero Summit will be delivered in partnership with the UN’s Race to Zero Campaign and will be supported by Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation.
We expect this year’s event to be even bigger and better than the last, which attracted almost 7,000 registrations from over 60 countries.
The Summit will particularly focus on the economic and employment opportunities from electrifying everything with renewables and using renewable hydrogen and ammonia for everything else.
The two-day program will feature Australian and international political, industry and civil society leaders, speaking about the need to take urgent action on climate and accelerate the use of renewable energy.
Hear from international experts, political influencers, eminent Australians, CEOs of leading Australian businesses and renewables firms, community and social change leaders and exciting start-up businesses from around the world.
