Technology is emerging as a key enabler in the path to net zero, with the tech sector playing a critical role both in CO2 emissions and mitigating the long-term impact of climate change. 5G networks, IoT, big data, AI and quantum computing all have a critical role to play in addressing the global climate emergency. The approaching COP26 summit will reinforce international climate change commitments, with both China and the UK having a key role in driving emissions reductions and more sustainable economic growth models.
This webinar session will examine the wider landscape of Net Zero Tech in both countries, highlighting existing synergies and opportunities for future partnerships. In particular, the Forum will focus on the important theme of Adaptation and Resilience, and the positive impact that UK-China collaboration in science and technology can have in mitigating the worst impacts of climate change on communities, cities, and natural ecosystems.
