Webinar: A global roadmap to Net Zero by 2050 with the International Energy Agency (IEA)

Please apply now to secure your spot on this live webinar. Sign up as usual using your WIG account, instructions to join confirming your place will be sent out a week ahead of the session. 

Bringing global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions to net zero by 2050 is going to require cross-sector collaboration on an international scale. The question of how we deliver clean energy around the world is crucial, not just to actors within the energy sector, but all organisations as we increasingly consider scope 3 emissions across international supply chains.

WIG is delighted to host the IEA for this webinar session, to inform and support our members’ net zero strategies across the sectors. Join us for your opportunity to:

  • Understand how we can transition globally to a net zero energy system by 2050 while ensuring stable, resilient and affordable energy supplies. 
  • Learn how a just transition can support robust economic growth in economies around the world.
  • Discuss key uncertainties, such as the roles of bioenergy, carbon capture and behavioural changes in reaching net zero.
