Exploring opportunities offered by low carbon economic transition scenarios in response to climate change and related global economic trends
Wednesday, 9 October 2019 10:30 to 13:00
To RSVP for all NBI Events, please contact Nombulelo Ndaba
The transition to global net-zero economies by 2050 is underway and accelerating. Business needs to engage in these conversations or risk undermining their competitiveness. We need to understand the risk, how planning is done by government and what role business could or should play.
Join us for an exclusive, member only event where we share an update on the NBI’s (National Business Initiative’s) research and an overview of government’s planning processes. In addition, we will deal with the complexity of a Just Transition in the context of transition ambition as well as discuss the need to support government in enhancing the detail and ambition in the NDCs (Nationally Determined Contributions) and LEDS (Low Emissions Development Strategy), in the build up to COP26 in 2020. The NDCs encapsulate each country’s contribution to reducing carbon emissions and adapting to climate change, as required by Article 4 of the Paris Agreement. While the NDC sets a country’s ambition, the LEDS document should lay out the plan for how the NDC goals will be reached.
This will be a highly interactive session where you will be given the opportunity to guide our research. We look forward to your participation.
