Massimo Bagnasco, CEO of China Europe Carbon Neutral, was invited as a guest speaker to share his thoughts and experience. Mr. Bagnasco highlighted the need for a holistic and systematic approach on the way of reaching decarbonization. He shared the three steps model (assess, minimize, offset) as way to approach each matter, large or small scale one. Then he shared two case-study, one related to urban settlement and the other to the rural area, addressing the importance of implementing the target of decarbonization also in the rural area since they could contribute to relieve the load on the densely populated ones.
Mr. Bagnasco concluded his presentation by appealing to all parties: “Cutting-edge technologies, processes and solutions must be paired with innovative and contextualized approaches: technologies alone will not achieve decarbonization. Achieving carbon neutrality is feasible but requires rapid, coordinated, and concrete actions.”
The Sixth International High-level Sustainable Development Sub-forum includes four sub-forums: “Green and Low-carbon Urban Industrial Structure”, “Green and Low-carbon Urban Spatial Structure”, “Green and Low-carbon Urban Transportation Structure” and “Green and Low-carbon Urban Energy Structure in the ‘Belt and Road’ Sustainable Cities Alliance Supporting Conference and Sub-forum IV”, which focus on the core of urban development and share the practical experience of cities from four dimensions: green and low-carbon urban industrial structure, spatial structure, transportation structure and energy structure.
