Global energy leaders to assemble in Singapore for AtoZero Asia 2024, a partner event of Ecosperity Week

The third instalment of the AtoZero series will launch the inaugural CSO Roundtable and convene over 1,000 government officials, industry C-suites and think tank leaders to drive the region’s Net Zero energy transition pathways

Singapore, 2 April 2024 – As countries around the world pledge their commitment towards Net Zero, governments and industry leaders are feeling the heat to accelerate their transition to clean energy. The impetus is also stronger after COP28, which conclusively determined that the world is not on track to limiting temperature rise to 1.5oC by the end of the century. With the speed of transition to a Net Zero future being nowhere fast enough, there is a renewed urgency to turn talk into scalable and sustainable action.
In response to a resounding call to accelerate collective climate action, AtoZero, or “Accelerate To Net Zero”, was envisioned to be a global series of events sparking policy dialogue, knowledge exchange and business partnerships turning ambition into reality. Organised by Constellar, the series brings together key decision makers and change makers to comprehensively explore pathways, policies and business opportunities that will benefit the global climate change agenda.

AtoZero Asia 2024: Creating maximum regional impact for net zero pathways

With world leaders committing to new climate action pledges at COP28, the clean energy economy has grown exponentially. Global clean energy investment jumped by 17% in 2023 to hit US$1.77 trillion last year, with solar energy investments leading the pack and overtaking oil production spending for the first time. As the world’s largest economic and trading region, many experts believe that Asia will play a pivotal role in shaping the global energy landscape.
To galvanise the region’s energy sector, the inaugural AtoZero (Accelerate To Net Zero) Asia 2024 Summit will be held from 16 – 18 April 2024 at Marina Bay Sands Singapore. The third – and largest – instalment of the AtoZero series, the Asia Summit will be a pivotal platform connecting over 1,000 energy policy makers, industry chiefs, think tank leaders and experts directly involved in shaping Asia’s energy future, creating unparalleled opportunities for collaboration and investment to meet the region’s growing clean energy demands.

The industry-led event will be anchored in Singapore annually, providing a gateway to multi-billion-dollar low-carbon energy projects in the region, thereby catalysing opportunities to build maximum impact for Net Zero pathways. AtoZero Asia 2024 is a partner event of Ecosperity Week 2024, with a shared vision to inspire and energise action-oriented dialogues, partnerships and solutions around innovations across technology, nature and finance that can accelerate a green and just transition.

“Achieving a global Net Zero future by 2050 requires urgent collective action where Asia with more than half the world’s population can accelerate scale and impact,” said Paul Lee, Chief Executive (Markets), Constellar. “This is a pivotal moment to turn ambition into reality by convening the region’s key decision makers in the ecosystem for action-oriented dialogue. Our vision for the inaugural AtoZero Asia Summit is build the foundation for an impactful network that can activate scalable and sustainable change across the region.”

AtoZero Asia to launch Asia’s first CSO Roundtable

The rise of renewables and decarbonisation technologies as critical solutions to power a Net Zero future sets the stage for AtoZero Asia 2024. With a strong focus on case studies in pioneering technologies including hydrogen, ammonia and carbon capture and storage, attendees will gain actionable insights on how these technologies can enhance their transition speed to Net Zero.

Of special mention is the inauguration of the region’s first Chief Sustainability Officers’ (CSO) Roundtable for the energy industry on 16 April 2024. It is the first platform dedicated to CSOs in Asia leading the charge on realising Net Zero commitments, and a crucial one to share unique insights on decarbonisation strategies and cutting-edge digital tools to steer energy organisations towards a sustainable future. With topics revolving around pain points and successful case studies across sectors, the action-oriented Roundtable is a closed-door session, operating with Chatham House Rules, to facilitate open and direct discussions.

Other Highlights
From 17-18 April, the Summit will deep dive into key pillars of the Net Zero energy transition, including the role of liquefied natural gas (LNG), solar, energy storage, hydrogen, carbon capture and storage, nuclear, and decarbonisation of transport. The exhibition will also offer unique insights into clean energy transitions, showcasing successful implementations of the latest sustainable and low-carbon energy innovations across four industry verticals — Solar & Storage, Regional Grids, LNG, and Decarbonisation Tech such as hydrogen, ammonia, carbon capture and storage.
