The inaugural Dublin Climate Dialogues seeks to scale up ambition in the run up to the critical COP26 Summit. On May 19 and 20, the Dialogues will bring together senior government representatives from the US, China, Europe, UK and the UN along with high-profile business representatives and leading economists to forge a declaration on how to turn net-zero pledges into concrete energy policies and actions to be adopted at COP26 including ways to strengthen the 2015 Paris Agreement. The Declaration will be handed to the COP Presidency at the conclusion of the conference.
On day two, the event will also aim to set-out how global energy systems should be recast to facilitate net-zero and on the technology underpinning the drive to sustainability.
Chaired by Pat Cox, former President of the European Parliament, we are delighted to confirm the participation of worldwide industry names, Dr Fatih Birol Executive Director of the International Energy Agency, Damilola Ogunbiyi, CEO and Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Sustainable Energy for All, Nobel laureate Professor William Nordhaus, former President of Ireland Mary Robinson and many more.
