How Far Can We Go With the Technology We Already Have?

8:30–9:30 a.m. G.M.T.
The Warehouse

What if the technology we need to deliver our net-zero commitments already exists, just not enough of it? There are those who argue that increasing investment in digital infrastructure to accelerate the rollout of 5G is, in fact, the most pressing and effective action we can take now to create more resilient post-Covid economies and avoid irreversible damage from climate change. What is the role of 5G in achieving net zero? Does it have to be a choice? Join us to discuss whether a reset is required to refocus climate innovation conversations on the technology that can make a difference today.
