Achieving a Net Zero Emissions Economy: Returning Carbon to the Earth

Join us on September 22nd as we take part in Climate Week NYC 2020 to unpack the significance of carbon, capture and storage (CCS), net-zero goals and the adoption of innovative technologies in the effort to tackle climate change.  

A live discussion with Global CCS Institute CEO Brad Page, renowned economist Lord Nicholas Stern and policy expert Jason Bordoff will be held, with remarks from U.S Senator Lisa Murkowski to follow. 

Key findings of a report co-authored by the Global CCS Institute and Columbia University – titled “Net-Zero and Geospheric Return: Thinking about 2030” – will be discussed by climate policy and CCS experts, Alex Zapantis and Julio Friedmann. 

For a closer look at the impacts of climate policy on the energy sector, a conversation with industry leaders will convene. Moderated by Axios’ Amy Harder, the panel will include: 

  • Mary Nichols – Chair, California Air Resources Board 
  • Seifi Ghasemi – CEO, Air Products 
  • Will Gardiner – CEO, Drax 
  • Leila Benali – Chief Economist, Arab Petroleum Investments Corporation

Closing remarks will be delivered by Sir Alex Halliday of Columbia University’s Earth Institute.
