Opening Leadership Dialogue
Climate Divisions and COP
Can The World Move Forward Together (and What Happens If It Doesn’t?)
The Western world has driven much of the climate agenda to date, but will a more assertive East and Global South change the debate? Is the COP process still relevant or has technology and country-level policy come to the fore? Who will pay for the transition and how?

Trading Across the Divide
Conflict, Trade Flows and Transition: Disruption and Opportunity
How has trade in global commodities been fragmented and politicized by the West’s attempts to isolate Russia? What is the impact of growing protectionism among competing countries?

The Changing Face of ESG

Winning Energy Strategies
How Best to Navigate Climate, Supply Security and Shareholder Returns
