Implementing Decarbonization Across the Corporation

Description: As companies are moving from board-level commitment on decarbonization to implementation throughout the corporation, various systems are being debated. What is the right process to decarbonize your operations? How should the decisions be made? What is the right language/metric? How does it differ between scope 1, 2 and 3?

The Realities of Developing and Scaling Low-carbon Economies

Session Description: A key success factor for carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) and other decarbonization projects is government/policy support, including favorable tax treatment and financing of large-scale hubs and infrastructure such as is occurring in North America and Europe. Given the experiences from developed economies, how can such projects in developing regions be incentivized to test low-carbon technologies? How can these projects then be scaled up given the policy and financing support available?
