The panel will discuss (among other things) the sector’s decarbonization efforts so far and how they need to accelerate to keep the 1.5C alive; and what a green and just recovery from Covid-19 looks like for the sector.

There is of course also discussion of the policy changes needed to enable the sector to turn ambition into action, with a reaction to recent updates here in the UK and international news from COP26 ahead of -last day.
