How far can we go with the technology we already have?

About this ThinkIn

in partnership with Ericsson

This ThinkIn is taking place at The New York Times Climate Hub in Glasgow, close to Cop26. Tortoise members are able to go in-person for free. Just go to The New York Times event page, click the black button ‘Get ticket £9.99’ and use the code TortoisexNYT to book your free in-person ticket. 

What if the technology we need to deliver our Net Zero commitments already exists, just not enough of it? There are those who argue that increasing investment in digital infrastructure to accelerate the roll out of 5G is, in fact, the most pressing and effective action we can take now to create more resilient economies post COVID-19 and avoid irreversible damage from climate change. What is the role of 5G in achieving Net Zero? Does it have to be a choice? Join us to discuss whether a reset is required, to refocus climate innovation conversations on the technology that can make a difference today.

We are delighted to be partnering with The New York Times to host a series of ThinkIns at The New York Times Climate Hub in Glasgow during Cop26. We will be hosting a number of ThinkIns over eight days, continuing our investigation into how we can Accelerate Net Zero.

This ThinkIn is part of Tortoise’s Accelerating Net Zero coalition. Visit the homepage to find out more about the coalition and join us.
