Location: Auditorium B, Business Pavilion, Blue Zone (Zone C, Area 5,  lot n. 118)
Date: 10 November 2022
Time: 16:00 –16:45 EET

Description: Convened by WBCSD with a knowledge partner, Oxford Net Zero, this session will focus on The Climate Drive –  the one-stop digital solution for all large businesses to build technical climate capabilities at scale and to accelerate the implementation of climate action across all sectors, including hard-to-abate, heavy and light industry.  

This session will showcase The Climate Drive’s first technology build, which includes the “Progress Review” for companies to assess net-zero gaps and opportunities, the “Net Zero Guidebook” detailing exactly how to execute the net-zero journey and the “Action Library” making specific technical decarbonization solutions accessible to all.  

In a live demonstration, we will hear from companies who plan to use The Climate Drive, as well as from WBCSD’s Global Network partners who are supporting its development across the world on the carbon reduction challenges they face and how the platform will solve them.
