10:00 – 11:00 EET — FMC session: Public-private collaboration to scale near zero heavy manufacturing

To confront the climate crisis, the world needs a range of clean energy technologies that are not yet available or cost-competitive in commercial markets. There is a narrow window between now and 2030 to demonstrate and commercialize innovative technologies so they are available for massive scale-up to enable net-zero emissions by 2050. This session will showcase tangible examples of public-private collaboration to scale transformation near zero technology to decarbonise heavy manufacturing. Launched at COP26 by US President Biden and the World Economic Forum, the First Movers Coalition is a flagship public-private partnership harnessing the purchasing power of top companies to decarbonise “hard to abate” industries.

11:20 – 12:00 EET — Havbruk, Norway: Circular solution for sludge recycling in Norwegian fish farming

Already today 49% of the world production of food comes from our oceans, this will need to increase over time due to the possibility to increase the food production on land is limited. At the same time have we used our oceans as a dumping station that reduces our potential to use our oceans and primarily our coastal regions around the world for food production, eutrophication cased by to much nitrogen and phosphorus being poured out from farming, wastewater, industry etc. In Norway they have understood the challenges and the risk that their 2nd biggest industry is facing, the fishing industry will see a reduced capacity to use fish farming if they do not remove the fish sludge from the fjords. A network collaboration called ARAL in Norway has proven the potential to both collect the fish sludge but also extract the resources from it. Already today the methane can be extracted with a total potential of 2TW hour of energy if all fish sludge would be collected. But there is even more potential, the fish sludge contains also 9,000 tons of P that today is waste every year. This is more P than Sweden as nation imports as a food phosphate. Norway is the frontrunner in this, but the potential is huge all over the world, Norwegian salmon industry is only 2% of the world total fish farming. The situation is starting to be critical in Canada, Chile, Scotland, Lake Victoria etc.

12:20 – 13:20 EET — The Potential of Carbon Finance to accelerate the energy transition

With the long-awaited adoption of the Article 6-rulebook at the Glasgow Climate Conference (COP26) in 2021, countries are now scaling up carbon market cooperation worldwide. It is clear that climate finance alone will not be enough to reach objectives of the Paris Agreement. In this context, carbon markets have an important role to play in mobilizing additional finance to mitigation activities and energy transitions around the world.

The first part of the side-event will share experiences from the early cooperation between Ghana and Sweden. Ghana and Sweden have the ambition to lead the way in the implementation of market-based cooperation under the Paris Agreement and will jointly be pioneering the way. The second part of the side-event will gather representatives from governments, organizations and companies that have started implementing Article 6. The discussion will focus on the overall potential of carbon markets, experiences so far and expectations on the role of market-based climate cooperation ahead.

In order to mitigate the worst effects of climate change we need to reach 1.5 degrees, this is non-negotiable. The first key milestone is the halving of emissions by 2030.

Enterprises play a major role in reducing emissions throughout their value chains. For this session we are joined by Ericsson, Normative, BT Group and Polestar, four leading companies who are committed and taking across the 4 Climate Pillars of the 1.5°C Business Playbook.

16:20 – 17:40 EET — The importance of system-thinking and circularity for decarbonisation

Emissions don’t only arise from our use of energy in buildings, in transport, for heating, but also from how we produce and use products and food. 45% of emissions come from the latter and the energy transition alone will not be able to tackle these. We need other solutions too. Systems thinking and a circular economy play a key role in developing these solutions.

This session will explore some of the ways in which companies from across sectors are beginning to integrate circular economy practices into their work:  the choices, challenges, and opportunities they uncover, the partnerships they need, and the considerations that arise in terms of scope 3 supply chain emissions accounting from circular economy activities.
