The new coronavirus has reaffirmed the importance of sustainability. Though the UN climate change conference known as COP26 has been postponed, green stimulus measures are proliferating, especially in the EU. In the energy sector, the shift to renewable energy is accelerating, and for investors, the importance of environmental, social, and governance criteria is on the rise. What should be the role of governments and businesses in achieving a circular economy? And what actions should we take in the future to address the challenges and risks? These are some of the questions the summit will address.
