Ask the Experts Session 1: Enabling Biodiversity to Thrive through Effective Circular Carbon Economy
Tuesday, 22 February 2022 | 1400–1530 | Meeting Room 1

Circular Carbon Economy (CCE) has gained traction in the industry as a pathway to deliver resource efficiency. While CCE promotes restoration of resources; it is not entirely clear how its approach could restore natural resources.

Preserving natural capital ensures a sustainable foundation for a circular economy. At the same time, a circular economy contributes to maintaining natural capital by reducing the environmental burden resulting from the use and depletion of natural resources. This interrelationships between the environment and the economy can help uncover trade-offs and synergies to identify ways to lower environmental pressures, while at the same time continuing to manage the economy effectively. In exemplary form the carbon circular economy will not only reduce the burden but will also integrate regenerative practices, so its impact is net positive.

This session will provide an opportunity to embrace new knowledge confidently and debate a viable roadmap to fully adopting CCE practices in our industry and value chain.

Ask the Experts Session 2: Reskilling for the 2025 Market
Wednesday 23 February 2022 | 0900–1030 | Meeting Room 1

Career experts have been emphasising since 2018 that a disruptive wave is on the rise for both the job landscape and skills at 2025. 50% of the current employees will need to reskill in the next five years to face increasing automation transforming jobs and post-pandemic economic changes.

This disruption comes with a positive impact, where it is expected that over 90 million jobs may emerge that are more adapted to the new division of labour between humans, machines, and algorithms.

Our panelists will address the newly emerging skills in self-management, such as active learning, resilience, stress tolerance, flexibility, and the energy industry’s new level of readiness to embrace change and openness to an agile workplace.
