In 2019, the climate breakdown is front and centre. Citizens are increasingly taking to the streets, demanding an inclusive and fair energy transition. Achieving the objectives of the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development requires governments and industries worldwide to also step up their game. It is time to close the policy book and start implementing inclusive measures that maintain the competitiveness of European industries. Governments will need to become increasingly ambitious when crafting their National Climate and Energy Plans. Furthermore, aligning the financial sector’s objectives with the needs of the climate will be instrumental in achieving a bold transformation at this time of EU leadership change.
This high-level annual summit will bring together an exciting mix of high-level speakers and a few hundred participants, including policymakers, academics, business leaders, civil society representatives and members of the international press from Europe and beyond.

After 20 years of negotiations, 195 countries signed the Paris Agreement to limit global warming well below 2°C above pre-industrial level by the end of the century. The focus now moves to design and implementation, and success will depend on the support and contribution of all – including industries, member-states, regions, cities and citizens.
