Charting the Course: A Flight Plan for Sustainable Aviation Fuel in Canada (Invite-only)

As the aviation sector works to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) can play an integral role. While Canada has the potential to lead in creating a sustainable aviation fuel value chain, we also face significant “turbulence” on the path to net zero. In part two of this roundtable series, leaders and decision-makers will convene at GLOBE Forum 2024 to understand the environment required to produce, deliver, and employ SAF across Canada. Our goal is to create a tangible action plan for a decarbonized Canadian aviation fuel supply chain that delivers shareholder returns and customer value. 

Introducing the Net Zero Supply Chain (NZSC) Initiative

The Net Zero Supply Chain (NZSC) Initiative is led by Delphi, GLOBE Series, and 7Gen, in partnership with Vancouver Fraser Port Authority, DP World, BC Hydro, CN, ABB, ClearBlue Infrastructure, Canadian Tire, and Loblaws. 

The first of its kind in Canada, the NZSC Initiative will help decarbonize Canada’s transportation sector and deliver significant environmental, social and economic benefits. Join us for the official launch and learn about opportunities for your organization to get involved!

Business to Business: Strengthening Supply Chains for Canada’s Energy Transition (Invite-only)

Supply chains for the energy transition are under stress in Canada and around the world. We need new business models for a net-zero economy. Join large corporates, Canadian SMEs (small-medium-enterprises), business associations, and public policy experts at this interactive roundtable to identify opportunities for optimizing procurement processes and supply chain performance. Participants will bring forward ideas and innovations to match supply with demand for clean energy and electrificationan essential component to accelerating the clean economy. 

Achieving Success Through Value Chain Collaboration Models

Reducing value chain emissions poses substantial challenges and represents some of the greatest opportunity to achieve climate targets. The complexity of reducing value chain emissions requires significant collaboration and partnership, both across and within industries and sectors. Join this session to learn from real-world examples that will provide tools and inspiration to support your organization’s decarbonization journey.

A Powerful Transformation: Mobilizing Technology & Capital for a Net-Zero Electricity Grid

Net-zero electricity is critical to delivering on our climate and sustainability commitments. The transformation of our electricity system to net-zero will require significant investment, technology scale-up, and collaboration across industry, governments and other stakeholders. Join executive leaders for this timely discussion on how we can mobilize the financing, capital and technologies required to enable a net-zero electricity system. 

Nature, Our Greatest Teacher to Build a Regenerative Future

Join environmentalist and drag queen, Pattie Gonia, as they share profound ways in which nature can inspire and guide us to take meaningful actions for both people and the planet. We will discover the connections between social and environmental justice and how we can harness our uniqueness and diversity to build the most regenerative future.  

AI for Sustainability: Accelerating a Regenerative Future

Artificial Intelligence (AI) presents an opportunity to drastically accelerate change in this decade of action. This rapidly evolving technology can be used to analyze complex datasets, advance the development of sustainable solutions, empower the green workforce, and more. Join Microsoft and other industry experts to get an inside look at some of the latest ways AI is driving forward sustainability progress and learn how your organization can responsibly implement artificial intelligence to create real progress towards your ESG goals. 

Scaling Circularity: Strategies for Implementing Circular Practices in Your Organization

Scaling circularity is not only about growing new technologies or starting new businesses; it’s also about rethinking how existing business models and operations can adapt and innovate. There are opportunities to implement circular initiatives within existing businesses, but scaling them requires investment, stakeholder buy-in, and collaboration. Join us to discuss how to overcome the barriers of scaling circularity and stay ahead of the curve. 

Valuing Nature Services: The Intangible Benefits of our Natural Capital

Though often viewed as “free,” nature has intrinsic value that is frequently underestimated. The “intangible” benefits derived from our natural capital drive significant economic value across numerous sectors, yet standard valuation practices habitually ignore this value. This session will explore how to use natural asset inventories as a starting point to understand the value of nature’s services, and how the value of natural assets can be incorporated into your organization.

Bridging the Climate Divide: Idealism, Pragmatism and Realism on the Road to Net Zero

While the urgency for climate action has never been greater, the topic often triggers debate and division. Advancing climate solutions must acknowledge that understanding the need to act is the easy part; the “how” is much harder. We need to consider all perspectives – from realistic to idealistic, from pragmatic to visionary. In this debate, we will explore why building a durable political and economic coalition for action is difficult. Join this dynamic debate to understand how leaders think about climate and learn how to connect skeptical or disinterested parties to drive transformative action.
