Partner Event: Circular Economy Solutions Dialogues (CESD) Deep Dive Webinar

Due Diligence and Circularity Solutions for Battery Value Chains

Thursday, 9 December 2021 | 12:30 – 14:30 (CET) via Webex

Battery technology is becoming an essential component of sustainable mobility. Thus, battery demand and production volumes will significantly increase over the next decades. Most studies expect a growth of between 15 and 20 per cent until 2030. In order to achieve a sustainability transformation of the automotive sector, a broad set of sustainability actions must be taken along the battery value chain.

The CESD Deep Dive Webinar seeks to explore the current state of environmental and human rights due diligence in the battery value chain and the potential of sustainable supply chains and circular solutions.

The CESD Deep Dive Webinar is part of the Circular Economy Solutions Dialogues (CESD) series, an initiative launched by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in cooperation with the Global Solutions Initiative (GSI).

The webinar will be hosted by GIZ and GSI and moderated by Daniel Weiss, Head of Green Economy Programme at adelphi.

Registration and participation is open for everyone and encouraged for practitioners within the industry or related industries.

Session 4 on Practical Solutions

Climate change is one of the most pressing challenges of our time, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) states that without additional efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, global warming is likely to exceed 2°C by the end of the 21st century. For this reason, long-term commitment and ambitious action is required by practically all sectors of the economy, including the chemical sector. The transformation of the chemical industry and related value chains with a focus on sustainable, low-emission processes and products is a huge challenge for a future-oriented transformation of the whole sector towards a “sustainable chemistry”.

To discuss the global perspectives of sustainable chemistry for climate protection and to raise awareness of the importance of the chemical industry for climate protection, CAPCI (Climate Action Programme for the Chemical Industry) in cooperation with ICCA (International Council of Chemical Associations) and the capacity building network of the United Nations Climate secretariat (PCCB-Network) is organizing a series of webinars. The webinar series consists of 4 sessions of 90 minutes each.

The session 4 on Practical Solutions for tackling climate change is mainly to share examples and best practices for climate protection considering the value chain of chemicals with special regards to circular economy and increased energy and resource efficiency. You are cordially invited to join us at the discussion.
