Closing the Loop for a Greener Tomorrow: How Does Circularity Enhance Climate and Nature Action?

This session will discuss the transformative potential of circular practices, for instance within food systems, energy and textile sectors for mitigating climate change and preserving natural ecosystems.

Businesses that Map and Eliminate Fossil Fuel in their Value Chains

The transition away from fossil fuels is an imperative to limit global warming close to 1.5°C. Given the pressing need to phase out fossil fuels, companies have a crucial role to rapidly phase out fossil fuels from their value chains, to put positive pressure on governments, and send a clear signal that we have entered “the beginning of the end” of the fossil era.

Sustainable Forest Management - a Nature-Based Solution for the Green Transition

EasyMining – Aqua2N solution can increase biogas production by removing ammonia in high concentrations. Trials has demonstrated that approximately 30% increase in Wastewater treatment plants is possible. And what is even better when installing the solution you will also eliminate laughing-gas emissions from the reject water.

Havbruk – Enables Increased Food Production in our Oceans

The Food- Water -Energy NEXUS with a focus on the Aquaculture Todays linear system causes challenges in the fjords where the Oslo bay already is dead and now we see accelerating challenges in other Norwegian fjords.

Circularity, Material and Energy Independence in the Energy Sector

Europe is facing major challenges in the energy and heating sector due to its dependence on Russian gas. Security of supply is an emerging issue, decarbonization and the green transition needs to happen to reach the Paris agreement of 1,5. In the same time European countries are not using its resources to its full potential.

Biodiversity Frameworks - How Do They Translate into Viable Business Strategies and Local Action?

Biodiversity loss is a global crisis that demands urgent attention and action from all sectors of society, including businesses. This panel discussion will convene experts and sustainability leaders to explore the intersection of biodiversity conservation and corporate strategy.

Heated Talks: Avoid Huge N20 and CO2 Emissions

Unlocking Resilience: Private Sector Partnership for Climate Security in the Arab States

This event aims to showcase and demonstrate business potential for catalytic public and private cooperation for innovative climate security solutions.

Recirculation of Phosphorus - Planetary Boundaries

Resilient Food Production Systems - Enabling Impact Generators through Innovation

The world’s 500 million small-hold farms produce one-third of our global food and employ up to two billion people, making them crucial stakeholders in food production systems. Small-hold farmers can be Impact Generators. But they lack access to innovative technologies to adapt to climate resilient farming.

Feeding a Megacity within the Planetary Boundaries and What Will It Mean for the Built Environment

How to supply food to 10 billion people living on the planet is the theme and here we will invite innovators, entrepreneurs, enterprises to be part in solving the quest.

No Climate Plans are Complete Without a Commitment on Food Systems: Navigating Pathways for Sustainable Food Systems Transformation

Food systems commitments form an integral part of a comprehensive global response to climate change, ensuring a resilient and nourished future for all.

Feeding the Future: Revolutionizing Food Systems through Technology and Innovation

Technology and innovation are key accelerators towards reshaping the food ecosystem. To build future-fit food systems, capable of meeting the challenges of a growing global population, they are not merely desirable but imperative.

From Should to Did – Taking Bold Bets to Transform Lives of 500 Million Small-Hold Farmers
