The next months will be crucial for the Think20 think tank community to produce policy recommendations in view of the Italian G20 Summit in October. This series of T20-associated events (closed-door and public Roundtables) is intended as an occasion to broaden participation in the T20 by adding new voices of international experts, civil servants, and representatives of the business community. ISPI, the T20 National Coordinator and Chair, and the KAPSARC are co-hosting the T20 Associated-event “The Quest for a Circular Carbon Economy”, in cooperation with the G20 Research Group, IEE Japan, OECD and the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies. This Public Event is preceded by a closed-door Workshop by invitation only (see the programme), intended as an occasion to broaden participation in the Task Force (TF) “Climate Change, Sustainable Energy and Environment”.
Limiting global warming to below 1.5°C has become an imperative of our times that can be met only by reducing the greenhouse gases emitted in the atmosphere. The Circular Carbon Economy (CCE) approach is an energy strategy that aims at reducing, reusing, recycling and removing carbon and it could play a critical role in advancing the hard-to-abate sectors towards carbon neutrality.
What measures should be taken to successfully implement the CCE? How to make the best use of innovative technologies to further advance cleaner energy transition? What role can be played by international fora (such as the G20) to advance the CCE strategy?
The programme of the event can be found here.

Ispi has always been careful to ensure an inclusive working environment and to be attentive to gender diversity and to the plurality of voices represented in its initiatives. When this is not reflected in one of our publications or events, it is due to the unavailability of the consulted experts to participate or to challenges in identifying specific profiles in our network.
