    Webinar: What Just Happened to Adani?

    This. Is. Massive.

    The Adani empire has been rocked after the release of a 100 page report by the Hindenburg Research group that has framed Adani as the “largest con in corporate history”.

    The detailed record of “brazen accounting fraud, stock manipulation and money laundering” has seen Adani lose over $90 billion in value in a week, have to cancel a major share sale and has prompted unprecedented global scrutiny.

    Join us on Thursday morning 8.30am AEDT (NSW,VIC,TAS,ACT), 7.30am (QLD), 8am (SA), 5.30am (WA), 7am (NT) for a webinar with special guests:

    • Tim Buckley, Director of Climate Energy Finance & long term Adani analyst
    • Gurridyula Gaba Wunggu (Coedie McAvoy), Waddananggu Cultural Custodian who has spent the last 520+ days reoccupying his ancestral homelands in Ceremony at Adani’s Carmichael mine-site.
    • Alice Delemare Tangpuori, a coordinator of the Toxic Bonds initiative, a network of organisations calling on financial institutions to deny debt for all new bonds from companies expanding fossil fuels.

    Tim and Gurridyula will help us understand what’s happened, why it’s significant and what could happen from here for Adani.

    For over a decade our movement and communities across the planet have called out Adani for the dodgy practices that has allowed it to push ahead with the Carmichael coal mine with out the consent of Traditional Owners and to also become the world’s largest private developer of new coal. This is a moment for us to celebrate and feel vindicated in all our efforts.

    Responsible Renewable Energy Summit 2023

    India has set a target of Net Zero by 2070. Rapid decarbonisation will be powered by the deployment of renewable energy (RE) on a massive scale, with an updated NDC goal of 50 percent renewable energy installed capacity by 2030. The discussions at COP27 reinforced the need for to increase RE deployment globally; while at the recent G20 Summit, India encouraged the countries to set ambitious RE goals. These commitments were accompanied by a focus on ensuring resilience, climate justice and energy security, issues that are key to enabling a just energy transition globally, in Asia and India.

    The RE sector is growing rapidly in India as the energy transition picks up pace. Renewable energy has the potential to offer much more value to India beyond decarbonisation, including by expanding access to affordable, clean energy; creating decent jobs that champion equity, driving a circular economy and helping nation’s economy to thrive; reducing pollution and regenerating natural ecosystems.

    As the RE sector grows, so will the need to manage risks such as unsustainable pressures on resources including critical minerals, land for generation and transmission, and the skilled workforce needed to support the energy transition. RE actors have a remarkable opportunity – and a responsibility – to ensure that the imperative to reduce emissions from energy is achieved in a manner that is responsible – ecologically safe, socially just and contributing to building a thriving, resilient India.

    We invite you to the first Responsible Renewable Energy Summit, where we bring together renewable energy experts, sector pioneers, policy makers, innovators, and civil society representatives to discuss how RE can set a benchmark for responsibility and the value it can create for every citizen in India for generations to come. Hear from the experts who are developing innovative, cutting-edge solutions. Discuss with the industry leaders who are pioneering impactful action on the ground.

    The Responsible Renewable Energy Summit is being organised by the Responsible Energy Initiative with The Nature Conservancy, Vasudha Foundation, National Solar Energy Federation of India and Climate Trends.

    14th February 2023, in-person at Desire Hall, Le Meridien, New Delhi | 10am – 4pm IST

    Key questions the Summit will explore

    • How do we ensure the development of RE happens in a way that prevents environmental and social conflicts and contributes to building resilient communities and thriving natural ecosystems?
    • How can we embed circularity in renewable energy value chains as domestic manufacturing ramps up in India?
    • How do we ensure investments in renewable energy are creating equitable value for everyone involved: the communities, citizens, developers, workforce, and vendors?

    World Ocean Summit and Expo

    The World Ocean Summit is the pre-eminent annual global event bringing together the widest cross-section of the ocean community from business and finance to governments, national and international policy-makers, civil society and academia. Economist Impact will celebrate the 10th anniversary with the return to a physical event in Lisbon, Portugal, a city (and country) at the forefront of sustainable ocean thinking and practice.

    The summit is designed to inspire bold thinking and new partnerships, and to trigger effective action to develop a sustainable ocean economy. It aims to change the way business is done in the ocean. The period between the recent UN Ocean Conference and the next will be vital in accelerating the transition to a sustainable ocean economy, and for meeting the 2030 targets in UN SDG 14.

    Next year, the summit will drive progress by addressing the greatest challenges facing the seas: climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution. High-level policy discussions will continue to be at the heart of plenary sessions. We will retain the focus on marine industries including shipping, fishing, aquaculture, energy and tourism and this year the agenda will feature cross-industry sessions to leverage synergies and encourage cross-sector engagement.

    Indonesia Summit

    Indonesia’s post-covid economic recovery is gaining momentum, and the blossoming innovation economy has the potential to promote long-term, stable prosperity. The country boasts a large population of young, technologically literate and upwardly mobile citizens, which has resulted in a thriving e-commerce sector. Growth in the fintech industry is increasing financial inclusion, enabling entrepreneurs to benefit. Meanwhile, the country’s vast resources of copper and nickel have attracted the attention of electric vehicle makers and their supply chains. How can Indonesia sustain these positive trends? How can the country climb the value chain globally, leverage the mobility of global talent and also develop indigenous human capital? Is the most recent omnibus legislation enough to maintain investment momentum? How should Indonesia better leverage regional partnerships to speed its emergence from the current broad-based economic challenges and pave the way to future prosperity? What policies will meaningfully accelerate digital transformation and enable SMEs?

    Building on a successful legacy of Indonesia Summits, the 2023 edition will bring together 150 business leaders, policymakers, academics and NGOs in-person in Jakarta-plus 1,500 online-for rigorous discussion and debate on the most important issues.
