Zero emission transport, zero energy buildings and closed loop design are but some examples of revolutionary solutions business can deliver.

Plenary discussion panel
Transforming policy to scale up green growth

According UNEP, redirecting just 2% of GDP towards green investments in key sectors will generate more jobs and wealth, reduce fossil fuel dependence, water demand and biodiversity loss while extending forestry and producing a more resource-efficient economy. To catalyse and secure the massive private investments needed for this, governments must invest public funds into R&D, infrastructure development and institutional capacity building. Yet, most governments have never been as indebted as now. This expert panel will debate high- leverage economic policies with transformative potential and put forward key decision points to be addressed in upcoming global multilateral meetings.
