Objective net zero

Since COP21, ambitious objectives have been announced to cut greenhouse gas emissions in order to limit global warming to below 1.5°C.

With the support of:


Objective net zero

Despite strong international cooperation, these efforts need to be accelerated now that we are seeing climate instability increasing worldwide. Today, the goal of carbon neutrality needs to be at the heart of any transformation strategy. To achieve this, the European Green Deal announced at the end of 2020 will provide a sizeable opportunity to invest in the deployment of models that are friendlier to our natural resources and environment.

During this first half-day we will present ways of implementing a sustainable strategy to decarbonise our companies and our regions, while also adapting those regions to climate – particularly water-related – risks (resource scarcity, floods, rising water levels, etc.).

We’ll learn how we can escape our carbon dependency and what essential changes must be identified and implemented if we are to achieve carbon neutrality across various activity sectors: energy, maritime industries, agriculture, transport, urban development.


to be adressed

Addressing these topics will allow us to present concrete solutions for sustainably reducing the impacts of climate change.The idea is to introduce a strategy for rational low-consumption energy transition in our industries, companies and regions.
