Low Carbon Cities Conference

Event Details

  • 9am until 5.30pm

Cities and regions have a vital role to play in leading the low carbon transition. They consume over two-thirds of the world’s energy and are responsible for as much as 70% of man-made greenhouse gas emissions.  This will be compounded by an expected rise in global urban population of 1.63% per year between 2020 and 2025, increasing the proportion of energy used in urban areas.

The Carbon Trust’s all new Low Carbon Cities Conference is built on the legacy of over a decade of successful public sector conferences. It will bring together a collaboration of more than 250 public sector bodies aspiring to accelerate carbon reduction across cities and regions. We will showcase important opportunities to collaborate with industry innovators.

The agenda has been designed to address the key challenges and barriers that most clearly resonate with city & regional authorities as they strive to lead the way on climate change. The day will consist of high level keynote addresses, expert panels, and a series of interactive workshops.

Highlights will include:

  • Claire Perry MP, Minister of State for Energy and Clean Growth - Plenary address
  • Sir James Bevan, Chief Executive, Environment Agency – Keynote speech
  • Mark Watts, Executive Director, C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group – Keynote speech
  • Introducing Science Based Targets for Cities
  • Exploring financing options for climate change solutions in cities  C40 Cities Finance Facility
  • Tackling transport  Launching a Zero Emissions Zone with Oxford City & Oxfordshire County Council
