Side event at the Global Clean Energy Action Forum, a joint convening of the 13th Clean Energy Ministerial and the 7th Mission Innovation ministerial.
Workshop: CCUS, ESG, and Just transition in Hard-to-Abate Sectors
Combating the climate crisis requires accelerating the deployment of technologies for decarbonizing the hard-to-abate industries. The workshop explores why frontline communities’ involvement must be front and center for reaching net-zero within the required timeframe to mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change. Through the lenses of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles and utilizing a process akin to a talanoa, participants from the financial sector, scientists, engineers, labor, NGOs, policymakers, youth, and frontline communities delve into three questions: (1) Where are we now in engaging frontline communities on the deployment carbon abatement technologies?; (2) Where do we need to be to ensure diversity, equity, justice and inclusivity?; and (3) How do we close the gap of where we are now and to where we need to be to ensure an energy transition to a net-zero economy and society where there are not stranded individuals or communities?
Carbon Engineering’s VP & Head of Business Development, Lori Guetre, will be speaking in this workshop.
