ICCA Energy & Climate Change Leadership group to participate in UNFCCC Asia Pacific Climate Week
During the UNFCCC Asia Pacific Climate Week (6-9 July) many policymakers will debate in virtual thematic sessions the pulse of climate action in the region, explore climate challenges and opportunities, and showcase ambitious solutions. This is a platform for regional stakeholders to have their voice heard and contribute to COP26. ICCA has been granted a side event during the Asia Pacific climate week and will dedicate this event to the innovative role of the international chemical industry in mitigating climate change.
The side event will take place on the 9th of July from 10.00 to 11.00 AM (GMT+9) and is organized by the ICCA Energy & Climate Change Leadership Group (E&CC LG).
The side event will address a selection of exemplary solutions from the global chemical industry to support the transformation toward a low-carbon society. Five main sectors were identified in which low-carbon transformations can be achieved: Power generation and storage, Mobility and transport, nutrition, and agriculture, Building and housing and Industry and production with 17 solutions having a carbon mitigation potential of 5 to 10 GtCO2eq/year by 2050. This amount is equivalent to one or two time the USA annual greenhouse gases emissions.
We would like to invite you to participate in this side event to hear more about differences in economic systems, geographical circumstances, infrastructures, market needs and the level of societal and political acceptance—even among adjacent countries and economies—that make it necessary for tailored development trajectories to be designed.
The event is public. You can join using the link: https://sdk-mtg2.webex.com/sdk-mtg2/j.php?MTID=mda2ea86105b80c52fc838a5990a42e02
