Description

The Systems Transformation for a 1.5 Degree World event is a special edition of the Low-Emissions Solutions Conference taking place alongside COP25 in partnership with WBCSD, and ICLEI.

Location: Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros Industriales, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Madrid, Spain
Date: Monday, 9 December (full day) and Tuesday, 10 December (half day).

With a dialogue between business, government and academia, LESC aims to help UNFCCC negotiators understand how to ramp up ambition on their NDCs and the technologies available to them to populate their Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDs).

This year's event at COP25 will build off the learning from the SDSN's Roadmap to 2050 A Manual for National to Decarbonize by Mid-Century report done in partnership with Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM). The report was written in consultation with more than 60 engineers to catalog the technologies currently available to decarbonize our power, transport, industrial and buildings sectors, and to highly the sector coupling opportunities available with a systems approach.

By showcasing successful case studies with collaborative storytelling, LESC provides an area alongside COP for collaborative brainstorming, problem solving, and knowledge sharing.

The 2019 LESC will bring together leaders and scientists from businesses, governments, and academia from around the world. Happening on the side lines of COP25, the LESC will host 6 panels featuring distinguished speakers who will showcase decarbonization solutions in the following areas:
  • Zero-Carbon Cities
  • Low Carbon Power Generation and Distribution
  • Harder to abate industrial processes (aluminum, cement and petrochemicals)
  • Transport and Shipping: Land, Air, Water
  • Defining Metrics: Ensuring Impact on Sustainable Development
  • Systems Approach and Sector Coupling
