This new panel event series from Bright Blue is an opportunity to discuss and debate new ideas and policies to tackle the interrelated crises of climate change and biodiversity decline ahead of the two COPs in 2021: the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change COP26 in Glasgow and the UN Biodiversity Conference COP15 in China.

The key questions that this webinar panel will explore are:

  • Will Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) technologies be central to achieving the net zero target?
  • What are the challenges associated with building industrial CCS clusters?
  • Should CCS be utilised primarily within hard-to-abate sectors?
  • How can government help ensure CCS projects come to fruition?

The key speakers are:

  • Lord Duncan, Former Minister for Climate Change
  • Dr Grazia Leonzio, Research Associate, Imperial College London
  • Torbjørg Klara Fossum, Vice President of Global CCS Solutions, Equinor
  • John Johnson, Director of Development, SSE Thermal
  • Patrick Hall, Senior Researcher, Bright Blue (Chair)

Date: Friday 17th September, 11:00am – 12:15pm
