Global Leaders are Committing to Climate & Net-ZeroDAVOS, SWITZERLAND , May 17, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Countries and companies are figuring out their climate commitments but what is it actually going to take to get the world to an affordable net-zero? How can leaders navigate their organizations through the transition and carve out the right resilience mechanisms, forward-proof for the next “pandemic”, understand the future of work and empower the “S” in ESG. Let’s look at what is happening at Davos this May where the world’s highest performing CEOs, senior government officials, academics, investors and innovators of our time come together to bridge the gap.
Stay tuned for what happens at The Green Accelerator focused on a green and regenerative transition with a pitch accelerator that showcases what innovators in the space can do, not only to be net-neutral but net-positive.
We see the term nature-based solutions (NBS) used increasing which refers to sustainable management and the use of natural features and processes to tackle socio-environmental challenges. There has been a considerable focus on how NBS will be used to tackle some of the current environmental challenges we are facing of our time especially with the release of the IPCC Report earlier this year. Climate change presents one of the largest threats to sustainable development and its widespread, unprecedented impacts disproportionately burden the poorest and most vulnerable communities.
The dress rehearsal is done--- the climate emergency intensifies with a need for both public and private sectors to unite and address global temperatures to mobilize the USD $3-5 trillion dollars (GIIN.org) annually to make the SDGs a reality. The Green Accelerator comes to Davos at an invite-only side event to the World Economic Forum meetings in Davos on 25th May 2022 with presence from senior government, investment management, innovators, and academia.
Curated and geared up in advance to COP27 in Egypt this year, the panel will begin with remarks from The Minister of International Cooperation of the Arab Republic of Egypt, H.E. Rania Al-Mashat together with Dr. Laura-Marie Topfer a sustainable finance expert and Partner at Extantia Capital.
Timely, and a follow-up from the recent Glasgow discussions at COP26, the first panel hosts selected impact investors and industry leaders focused on leading the energy transition, such as, Kerry Adler --- a visionary serving as SkyPower’s global President and CEO who helped propel SkyPower since inception; now, one of the largest and most innovative renewable companies focused on large-scale solar generation in over 35 countries and four continents.
A focus on emerging market impact investors also come to the stage such as Barbara Ann Bernard, Founder & CIO of Wincrest Capital, moderated by Michael Stirling, Chairman and CEO of Stirling Infrastructure Partners.
Followed by one of the world’s authorities on planetary boundaries, Professor Johan Rockstrom, an internationally recognized scientist and Professor of Environmental Science, PIK at the Stockholm Resilience Centre, will lead the second panel on climate solutions and the role technology has in safeguarding our planet. Moderated by Global Impact Strategist Nisaa Jetha, a leading professional across brands and the investment management space, specialising in ESG, Impact and Climate Resilience & Mitigation furthering catalytic sustainable solutions. Commenting on the event, Nisaa Jetha reflects:
“Forums like Davos are key to catalysing and delivering on the SDGs. A key focus during my time at COP26 was understanding how emerging markets can further Agenda 2030. I started to build around a term I used “climate leapfrogging” which in the environmental space outlines how emerging and developing nations can leapfrog to modern, clean technologies which is an integral part of climate resilience, mitigation and capacity building. It also informs that some of the brightest and biggest solutions may have the opportunity to come from emerging markets as we see with the case studies around mobile banking. Looking forward to being part of Green Solutions at the Green Accelerator in Davos.”
