Welcome to our Net zero launch event #5!
Sustainable cities – Time to implement at scale!
According to the COP28 agreement, energy efficiency must be doubled globally for the World to reach net zero in 2030. Moving forward, this statement of awareness needs to be brought into action and implementation at scale, and this is where Sustainable Cities comes into play.
Cities account for 80% of the global energy consumption and more than 70% of global carbon emissions. With improved energy efficiency of heating and cooling systems, sector coupling and groundbreaking partnerships and sector coupling, we can make it happen. On the 9th of April, Alfa Laval has invited stakeholders from the industry, representatives from cities, policy makers, and partner organizations to participate in a panel discussion on this important topic.
This online broadcast is free to join.
