On October 21-22nd, the Sustainability Leaders Summit will go beyond preexisting narratives and debate priorities for governments and industries ahead of COP26. Placing the spotlight on Asia's role in the global sustainability agenda, the event will address whether Asian countries and companies can achieve shared sustainability goals, and what is needed to help get them there.
Day 1’s session identifies both the challenges and opportunities for Asian nations, looking at the region’s climate footprint and the innovative solutions to minimize damage.
Session #1: Protecting the Planet: Asia’s risk and responsibility
Thursday, October 21, 2021
8am ET / 8pm SGT
•Asia’s Environmental Impact: Understanding the science behind key climate risks affecting the region and how Asian governments and industry are contributing to both problems and solutions
•Policy Priorities: How are policymakers and global organizations collaborating on climate action, setting and achieving targets, and working towards urgent outcomes?
•Innovation and Asia’s Future: Leading private-sector companies, start-ups and investors discuss technology and innovation’s roles in tackling climate change
Session #2: Plastics: Unlocking sustainable solutions
Friday, October 22, 2021
8am ET / 8pm SGT
•Sustainable Plastic: Since its invention, plastic has enabled innovation in manufacturing, healthcare, engineering, food storage and transportation, to name a few. But irresponsible and illegal approaches to plastic waste management, along with unclear or absent recycling regulations have turned it into a global problem. Will a shift away from plastics to alternative materials be better for the environment and cut emissions? Are there safer, more sustainable ways to use plastic?
•The Roadmap to Circularity: What are the practical pathways and current roadblocks to a “circular economy”? How do we change attitudes and behaviors and move towards greater societal participation in recycling and reuse solutions? What role do policymakers have to play in this transition?
•Unlocking Innovative Solutions: A look at innovative uses of plastic and the future of plastic creation.
The summit will be co-hosted by Tak Niinami, CEO of Suntory, and Ian Bremmer, founder and president of Eurasia Group and GZERO Media. It will bring together global leaders from multilateral institutions, national governments, and the private sector to generate urgency, establish priorities, and draw up blueprints for action around environmental sustainability in Asia and beyond.
