Plenary: The Business of Inclusive and Green Growth - New business models to drive sustainability throughout the value chain

Sustainability and long-term value creation are closely linked. Businesses and markets cannot operate in isolation from society and the environment. In the face of the emerging resource crisis and the need to curb carbon emissions, more companies are becoming increasingly aware that a green growth business model is a good business as well as a business strategy. The focus of the roundtable plenary is the respective roles of companies and governments in improving sustainability throughout the value chain, optimizing resource use, reusing waste, product innovation, and investing in new consumer tastes.

Plenary: Green Growth Mind Set - Thinking the impossible 

Green growth is intended to signal the practical possibility of a sustainable, inclusive and prosperous future. However, green growth does not yet evoke major behavioural change, mirroring the weak and sometimes perverse impact of its counterpart, fears associated with climate change and resource scarcity. How can green growth's underlying imperative be tuned to shift behaviour and impacts? Scale is key, with the need to change for example tens of billions of daily consumption decisions and reallocate several hundred trillion dollars in private financial assets. Timeliness of change is also critical, with some changes needed within a matter of one or two decades, and in some cases even sooner.

Plenary: Fossil Fuel Subsidies Reform  

There are clear economic gains for subsidy reform. Resources can be freed for alternative purposes; the playing field for investments in renewables is levelled; short-term inflation and reduction in output are concerns; and wealth will be redistributed. This redistribution is a key constraint to progress: governments are concerned about hurting the poor but often the more wealthy parts of population are gaining most from subsidies. Business opportunities can be affected, and a range of stakeholders – with real and sometimes legitimate claims – oppose reform for fear of losing out. The focus of the session will be the data, the tools, the cases and business strategies.

Plenary: Sustainable Food Production - Doing more and better with less 

Close to 870 million people suffer from hunger. On top of this with the growing population more than 9 billion people need to be fed by 2040. The increased demand for food and shifting dietary demands combined with rising demands for biofuels and continued reliance on unsustainable agricultural practises exacerbate the pressure on natural resources. The debate will focus on what it takes to ensure responsible production and access to food. On the preconditions for PPPs - the commitment and responsibilities of the private and public sector in delivering.
