    11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. | Transition finance as a vehicle for credible transition plans roundtable
    Delivering a net zero world requires up to $250t of capital to be channelled into the low carbon economy by 2050. Whilst ‘green’ finance principles are becoming better understood, ‘transition finance’ is still emerging. Standardization is key to unlocking capital and the immense opportunity in financing opportunities that enable the transition or assets with a credible transition plan. At this roundtable, participants from Asset Owners, Asset Managers, Banks and Standard Setters will discuss: How they are thinking about defining ‘transition finance’ within their organization, what is missing to provide confidence to the market in deploying ‘transition finance’; and how they are assessing the credibility of transition plans in their activities.

    3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. | GST | Blue Zone | Carbon Insurance and dMRV: Managing Risk and Enhancing Transparency in the VCM
    A fundamental issue that plagues voluntary carbon markets today is the lack of transparency and related trust in carbon credits. Digital measurement, reporting and verification technologies (dMRV) can build shared confidence across project developers, buyers, sellers, lenders, investors and intermediaries in the true environmental impact of carbon claims. These actors are also exposed to a myriad of risks that can affect project attractiveness and bankability. These include potential physical losses to carbon offset generating assets, environmental liabilities associated with project implementation, political and regulatory risks, and underperformance in / non-delivery of expected carbon emission reductions / removals. Combining dMRV technologies with carbon insurance covers offers a potential means to support quality and high-integrity voluntary carbon markets and net zero targets. This industry panel will share perspectives about how dMRV and insurance together support the life cycle journey of the generation, monitoring, verification, insuring, and ultimate purchase and retirement of a high integrity carbon credit.

    3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. | Risks and renewables: addressing the modern slavery risks of scaling renewable energy
    The impacts of climate change will adversely affect a wide range of human rights. There are clear links between climate change, the energy transition and increased vulnerability to human trafficking and modern slavery. In 2023, for the first time, solar panels have cracked the top 5 most “at-risk” products for modern slavery globally1. How can we scale renewables and drive climate action in a way that protects the livelihoods, health and freedoms of the most vulnerable?

    The G20 accounts for over half of all people living in modern slavery and imports half a trillion dollars of products connected to modern slavery annually. How can we bridge the divide between Global North and South in eradicating modern slavery? What is the role of investors and asset owners and managers in reducing modern slavery risk in their value chains? What tools exist to embed modern slavery risk reduction in the scaling of renewable energy?.

    1:00 p.m. – 1:45 p.m. | Turning the tide in scaling renewables
    The renewable energy industry has experienced impressive growth over the past decade. However, with renewables currently representing only 14% of the global energy mix2, the goal to raise this figure to 77% by 20503 will require a tripling of renewable energy deployments from 2022 levels over the next six years.

    What are the prospects for the global renewable energy industry to bridge the gap and deliver the desired speed and scale of growth by 2050? In the face of mounting barriers, how can renewable energy stakeholders—from developers to policymakers—innovate to accelerate the pace of sustainable energy solutions? With over 84% of renewable executives5 reporting project delays or cancelations, what lessons can we draw from those who have triumphed over these challenges to reimagine our approach to deployment? As investment flows are crucial, what are the roles and responsibilities of financial institutions in overcoming the funding challenges for renewable energy projects?

    Join this immersive session that will not just dissect these inquiries but also facilitate a dynamic exchange of ideas, unveiling innovative pathways to scale renewable energy in a manner that honors our collective commitment to a just and sustainable future.

    2:00 p.m. – 2:45 p.m. GST | Breaking financial barriers in decarbonizing cities
    Attracting private sector investment into cities is essential for achieving ambitious decarbonization and just transition goals as well as stimulating prosperity. Cities know their needs and priorities to achieve net zero but need to secure investment that goes beyond the public purse. On the other hand, private investors seek investable and profitable projects that offer options for replicability - a key component in accelerating decarbonization in cities.

    This session will bring together city mayors and leaders, private investors, government and other stakeholders to discuss how to progress existing pragmatic initiatives that are bringing together cities and investors and addressing the challenges of securing investment including innovative financing, scale replicability.

    The KPMG Net Zero Urban Program and the UK’s Cities Commission for Climate Investment (3Ci) have been collaborating on Net Zero Neighborhoods, a place-based integrated finance model approach which is attracting the interest of investors. Fifty UK cities have submitted Net Zero Neighborhood proposals to 3Ci demonstrating the ambition of UK cities. The Mayor of Bristol and Leader of Glasgow will be in the room to discuss the challenges and opportunities of their NZN proposals as well as highlighting other successful models in their cities that have the potential to be scaled up and replicated such as Bristol City Leap – Bristol’s £1 billion low carbon energy infrastructure program being delivered through a public-private partnership, and the Glasgow Green Print which puts forward £30 billion worth of net zero projects for the investment market.

    Participants will be invited to provide valuable insights and feedback that will take the Net Zero Neighborhood proposals from business case to delivery by COP29 and accelerate the scale and replication of other models.

    10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. | Sandbox for skills: young professionals and the skills needed for a just transition
    Today, we have the largest youth population in the world’s history. We also have one the largest and most complex challenges in the world’s history: climate change. As we rapidly transform our systems to mitigate and adapt to climate change, so too the skills needed to deliver on this transformation must be developed. According to the ILO, 100 million jobs can be created through the transition to sustainable energy sources and a circular economy scenario.

    What are the skills needed to fulfil this transition? How are those development opportunities equitably distributed? How can young people best prepare themselves for the changing world? And, what is the role of the private sector in supporting this development, when institutions lag behind?

    12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. | City slickers: Youth and urban decarbonization with Student Energy
    It is estimated that 60% of rapidly growing city populations are projected to be less than 18 years old by 2030.7 In particular, in emerging economies and the Global South, birth rates continue to rise in parallel to urban centres developing and expanding. The number of young people seeking urban life, for healthcare access, employment and economic opportunity and education is putting a strain on existing infrastructure, and demanding development. In parallel, cities most rapidly decarbonize to meet Net Zero goals.

    How can young people be a part of solving the tension between urban development and emissions reduction? What are the levers young people can pull to address municipal and local governments to create a sustainable future? How can this be done with a place-based approach, where cultural context and inclusion are at their core?
