By viewing decarbonization as an opportunity, rather than a threat, and taking immediate action on climate change, companies can gain a competitive edge.
In the face of climate change, one of the greatest challenges of our time, the energy industry of the future needs to supply both sustainable and affordable energy, while swiftly reducing greenhouse gas emissions to meet global carbon reduction targets.
Roland Berger is knowledge partner of Energy Week, a series of regional conferences hosted by Siemens Energy that bring together business and political leaders to tackle the challenges and tap the potential of decarbonization.
The first event of the series is the Asia Pacific Energy Week, a two-day virtual conference on March 28 and 29. Thought leaders and decision makers across the fields of energy, technology, finance, business and government came together to discuss how to accelerate the energy transition in a region that is home to some of the fastest growing economies in the world.
Roland Berger Global Managing Director Denis Depoux moderated a panel on the "Fall of Coal and Rise of Renewables – Satisfying the Region’s Appetite for Energy". The session focused on how the region’s businesses can best manage the switch from coal to renewables to achieve their countries’ emission targets.
