Nature-based Solutions: Answer to carbon mitigation?

Thursday, March 12

12:30 pm - 01:20 pm

The energy transition is putting companies under intense pressure to reduce carbon emissions, so many players are looking for innovative ways to cut back on their businesses’ emissions. Natural solutions, including innovative shifts in reforestation, agricultural practice, and mangrove conservation, are helping to mitigate carbon footprints from energy production and consumption, while promoting a healthy, biodiverse ecosystem. What is the carbon-mitigation potential and cost? How do nature-based solutions connect to new climate policy targets to achieve net zero emissions? How can energy companies develop nature-based, non-energy assets?
