Unfortunately I missed this announcement / event.

  It might be worthwhile for some of our members (Drawdown Initiatives, Biochar Ontario, Canadian Biochar Initiative, CRCN etc.) to get involved in this conversation around "Build Back Better".

P.S. An increase in net energy from renewable energy sources is entirely feasible if done right, and could sustain high levels of prosperity worldwide with a fundamentally egalitarian economic system.

The main prerequisite for this pathway, though, is the elimination of carbon emissions from the US military — widely considered to be the biggest institutional consumer of crude oil in the world.


"The path for global economies to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic is through investment and job creation in building the global renewable energy and sustainability infrastructure.
 Our market system can be tweaked to make the pursuit of sustainability and ecological value the high growth and high profit center of the 21st century. Economic growth can mean ecological improvement. This isn’t pie in the sky. The numbers work."

Hi Lloyd, 

As we begin to adjust into ‘crisis as normal’ it is vital that we do not ignore the greater threat on our horizon. With lockdowns beginning to ease, energy transition must be placed at the centre of all plans for economic revival. 

Join Reuters Events Virtual Build Back Better Symposium (9th July, 14:00 - 17:15 BST) alongside CEO’s and executives from United Nations PRI, Snam, Carbon Trust, Global CCS Institute, Sonnedix, World Resource Institute, Reuters and more, to explore how we can ensure that climate recovery is placed at the forefront of plans for economic revival post Covid-19.

Build Back Better Symposium: Defining Discussions for 2020:

  • A Fast Tracked Transition: Crisis as a Catalyst. We are realising an energy mix that we did not expect to see this decade. Has COVID-19 fast-tracked the energy transition?
  • Peak Demand? What does this mean for companies in transition, how can companies pivot through crisis and how can we ensure better business, rather than business as normal?
  • Clean Energy as an Agent for Recovery. How can we encourage continued growth in establish renewables whilst delivering funding for new innovations. How and where should the trillion dollar stimulus packages be spent? 

If you have any further questions, I’d love to hear from you.

Best Regards,

Owen Rolt
