Environment & Development Forum

Environment & Development Forum
Environmental and climate change impact topics including clean and renewable energy, sustainable development, ecological conservation and protection, CO2 emission and pollution control, and food and water security are amongst the top key items on most countries’ agendas. Creating strategies, roadmaps and technologies that address environmental issues, adaptation and mitigation measures, and sustainable development are not only critical, but vital to the survival of the human race. Some topics which were once viewed as measures for protecting the future generations, are now priorities for today, as rapid urbanization and population growth in absence of sustainable measures have led to a rapid destruction of the planet’s equilibrium, and in a nutshell, we have less time than once assumed.

Accelerating the Transition to Sustainable Infrastructure 2024

January 15, 2024 | Switzerland

Corporate leaders face mounting pressure from investors, customers and regulators to decarbonise operations, assets and infrastructure. However, progress is slow; according to the Infrastructure Transition Monitor research, commissioned by Siemens and conducted by FT Longitude, only 30% of companies globally (out of 1,400 surveyed) reported significant advances in decarbonisation or electrification of core processes, and just 37% cited improvements in the energy efficiency of their buildings and facilities. Given that buildings alone contribute nearly 40% of energy-related carbon emissions, there is a large gap to be filled on the road to net zero. Economic crises and budget constraints, as well as a lack of standardisation and alignment on priorities, are challenging efforts to bring about swift and meaningful change. Innovation and collaboration are required to accelerate electrification and to ensure that infrastructure across grids, buildings and transportation is efficient and resilient enough to meet sustainable goals. This reception and panel on Accelerating the Transition to Sustainable Infrastructure, hosted by the Financial Times, in partnership with Siemens, will bring together leaders who are working to bridge gaps in decarbonisation. The discussion will consider the technologies, cooperation and alignment needed on the path to net zero to advance efficiency gains and speed up electrification across corporate and industrial infrastructure.
