18:10 GST / 15:10 CET — Bridge the Gap between the Latest Science, the Climate Negotiations, and the Solutions

Tipping points occur not only in undesirable processes, but also in desirable contexts. Whilst human activities are pushing the planet towards negative tipping points, jeopardising the very foundations of human well-being on earth, there exists viable solutions that could keep the world on track – provided there's robust support in policy, finance, and leadership for swift global implementation.

Together with business leaders, policymakers and scientists we'll explore the positive tipping points on the horizon or already achieved, delving into the success factors driving these transformative moments.

20:10 GST / 17:10 CET — Navigating the Climate Challenge: Sustainable Leadership in Action

As the world grapples with the urgent and complex issue of climate change, the role of sustainable leadership has never been more critical. This panel discussion will bring together thought leaders, experts, and practitioners in the field of sustainability to explore the intersection of leadership and rapid climate action.

21:10 GST / 18:10 CET — How to Implement Near Zero Emissions Technologies for a Climate Neutral Society - What are the Needed Milestones and Policy Measures?

The Breakthrough Agenda report 2023 concludes that even if the transition to clean energy and sustainable solutions is accelerating, global emissions are still increasing and there is a need now to deploy near zero emission technologies at scale. For steel this means that we need 70 near zero emission steel plants by 2030. What is needed to get projects off the ground and how can value-chain collaboration and policy measures support this needed acceleration?

22:10 GST / 19:10 CET — Swedish Leadership in Cutting Emissions, Boosting Sustainable Growth and Economic Empowerment on a Global Market

The session will discuss how growth, emissions reductions and economic empowerment can go hand in hand, and how successful partnerships and strategic alliances between local business communities in Sweden, the EU and globally are the main drivers of all three.

To achieve net zero supply chains by 2030-2050, the MASSIV+ partnership explores a cross-industry standard for turning greenhouse gas emissions data into actionable information – and thereby reduce negative impact. The purpose is to enable seamless collection and validation of greenhouse gas emission data from Scope 1 and 2 – in order to secure Scope 3 across supply chains. We will share our lessons learned from collaborating around developing a prototype that acts within the decarbonization data reporting area – driving transparency, standards and speed.

00:10 GST / 21:10 CET — The Future of Reducing Scope 3 Emissions

What is the future of scope 3 emissions? We often speak to the challenges that enterprises are navigating to deliver the transition towards net zero, and seize the opportunities that lie therein. In this panel, you will hear about the solutions. How enabling technology will provide seamless exchange of carbon data.

01:10 GST / 22:10 CET — Reimagining How We Feed the World – Collective Actions to Future-Proof our Global Food Systems

How could global food systems better sustain our planet and its people by 2040? The urgent need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve ecological conditions to sustain the planet and its growing population by 2040 is the focus of a panel discussion based on Tetra Pak's white paper. The discussion will address three critical issues and five key objectives for a more sustainable future. Stakeholders from various sectors will explore the reconfiguration of global food systems to align with ecological, social, and economic imperatives, including private sector engagement and Tetra Pak's pathways for change.
