Race to 0-CO2 Neutrality

Date 10.10.2023
Location Online Webinar

The race to achieve CO2 neutrality, or net-zero emissions, involves global efforts to drastically reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in order to mitigate climate change and create a sustainable future for our planet.

In addition to reducing GHG, the race to achieve CO2 neutrality also emphasizes the conservation and responsible management of water resources, recognizing the crucial role that water plays in both climate adaptation and mitigation strategies.


During our webinar on “Race to 0-CO2 neutrality”, speakers engaged in discussions covering a range of subjects such as the development of greenhouse gas reduction targets, technical solutions for emissionreduction, climate mitigation within the water sector and the European Union's ambitious 2040 climate target for the water sector.

In the second part of the webinar, we had the valuable opportunity to hear from industry experts and operators  who shared their experiences and expertise on making significant strides towards reducing GHG emissions. This interactive session provided an enriching platform for insightful discussions and the exchange of knowledge.

Together, let's accelerate the race to achieve CO2 neutrality.
