In the build up to COP26, Resilience First, in partnership with Intel, is pleased to present a series of webinars in March 2021. Which will be followed by a white paper in the next quarter, on the theme of ‘Decarbonisation and the Role of Technology’.

Through these webinars and the white paper, focused on the aviation, manufacturing, rail and urbanisation industries, we will explore the way that technology can support these sectors. It will help them with the concept of decarbonisation to achieve carbon net zero in the coming decades by considering four solutions: adaptation, energy efficiency, renewables, and carbon capture.

Climate change is a systemic threat to civilisation and will upend the corporate world. Our aim is to offer insights on the ways that several industries can counter these threats. Both through decarbonisation and the deployment of new and innovative technological solutions to help reach carbon net zero.

The webinars will each feature a keynote address, followed by tech innovative demos. 

All webinars are free to attend.
