Luncheon with Sir David King - UK Special Representative on Climate Change
The Risks and the Opportunities presented by the transition to a Low Carbon Economy
The global low-carbon market is estimated to be worth more than $5 trillion, and over the next 15 years, it is estimated that around $90 trillion will be invested in the world’s energy systems, land use and urban infrastructure.
Our guest speaker, Sir David King, represented the UK at the historic 2015 Paris Climate Conference and at the follow-up COP22 negotiations in Marrakesh in November 2016, where the UK was at the forefront of efforts to advance innovation in clean energy technology globally.
This has provided him with unique insights into the risks as well as opportunities that will arise as the world makes the transition to a low carbon economy.
This Special Lunch has been arranged to coincide with Sir David King’s second official visit to Taiwan in his current role and also his final overseas trip as the UK‘s Special Representative for Climate Change. In his remarks, Sir David will focus on the opportunities for business from the transition to the new low carbon economic model and share his thoughts on global clean energy innovation.
