UK-China Tech Forum
COP26 and Net Zero Tech
Technology is emerging as a key enabler in the path to net zero, with the tech sector playing a critical role both in CO2 emissions and mitigating the long-term impact of climate change. 5G networks, IoT, big data, AI and high-performance computing all have a critical role to play in addressing the global climate emergency.
The approaching COP26 summit in Glasgow will reinforce international climate change commitments. Both China and the UK have made significant commitments on emissions reduction and are actively pursuing more sustainable models of economic growth. The importance for closer collaboration in Net Zero Tech between the two nations has never been greater.
This webinar session will examine the wider landscape of net zero tech in both countries, highlighting existing synergies, and the long-term benefits of closer UK-China collaboration in this important area.
