The Carbon Economy
This November, The Economist will convene a diverse group of senior representatives from business, government, academia and international organizations to explore the global policies necessary to secure the world’s energy future. Timed with the publication of a special report in The Economist, The Carbon Economy summit will examine how the political environment has changed since Kyoto and how committed regions and industries are to a sustainable carbon strategy.
The time is now - for government, business and civil society to decide how to combat climate change and secure our energy future. In December 2009 a new framework to replace the Kyoto Protocol will be discussed in Copenhagen. Although challenges remain, opportunities abound as new green markets are being created. Over a day and a half, speakers and participants at The Carbon Economy will exchange ideas on how governments and the business community will ultimately find innovative solutions to conquer global warming while sustaining economic growth.
