Join SSF and the Global Electronics Council in partnership with the Global Council for Science and the Environment to delve deeper into the role of sustainable purchasing at COP26. Panelists will discuss their perspectives on the climate imperative, lessons from the Arctic, health risks and how the global demand for sustainable and circular technology products & services mitigate climate change, increase the wellbeing of individuals worldwide, provide equitable economic opportunity, and transform the technology sector.
First, Gaya Herrington, author of the recent "Update to Limits to Growth," presents her findings from updated modeling. Then, Russian climatologist and IPCC contributor Oleg Anisimov examines evidence of Arctic destabilization. Then, Karim Ahmed discusses accelerating adaptation imperatives, especially in island nations and other at-risk communities.
The Global Electronics Council CEO, Nancy Gillis, will moderate the session and discuss GEC's new sustainable purchasing campaign to help manage the natural resources in ways that reduce pressure on Eath's regenerative capacity.
