Science has shown us that today the major cause of global warming is the amount of carbon dioxide poured into the atmosphere as a consequence of human activity. To change the current temperature-rise course and to prevent catastrophic natural disasters, CO2 emissions have to be severely reduced - a step that will demand a serious commitment from the energy sector.
Fortunately, there are more and more people and companies taking brave decisions to accelerate the pace of the global energy transition.
The complex challenges ahead call for an urgent joint effort from all industry players, regulators, governments, companies and people to align incentives, technological development and mindset to promote change. In this context, EDP Comercial stepped up with the launch of EDP Business Summit 2021 – Leaders and Corporations committed to the Energy Transition, a digital project that brought together decision-makers and companies from across the world to share and discuss principles and practices to accelerate energy transition, to imagine new solutions, to assume and encourage change. It was a unique half-day program with internationally renowned expert speakers, thought-provoking keynotes and transformative debates, and a call to think, be and act greater for a more sustainable tomorrow for all.
