How do we pursue collaborations and partnerships to ensure we achieve our target of limiting global warming to 1.5°C for a more sustainable energy future, while delivering the #UNSDGs by 2030?
Join us for commitments and decisions at SAREF3.0, continuing the conversation from SAREF1.0 and SAREF 2.0 as a prelude to the World Hydropower Congress (#whc) and on the road towards COP28.
Our panellists and speakers will provide views and perspectives on how we can encourage the development and sharing of renewables in Southeast Asia, the necessary policy and mindset shifts for greater uptake of an electrified transport system to transform our cities, what else can be done to resource the energy transition so that it is just and inclusive, as well as discuss ESG and energy financing.
Our plenaries will discuss what we need to do to achieve common prosperity by meeting the demands of growing energy needs while addressing the trilemma of security, affordability, and sustainability.
Leading the discussion is Dame Christiana Figueres, who joins us in Kuching together with energy industry and sustainability leaders as well as regulators, investors, financiers, businesses, and other stakeholders. A key leader in the worldwide effort to address climate change and former executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC), Dame Christiana brought together nearly two hundred countries as parties to the Paris Agreement and is co-writer of The Future We Choose: Surviving the Climate Crisis.
As we move forward from the great reset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we know that it cannot be business as usual.
See you on 6 & 7 September in Kuching, UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy.
Powered by Sarawak Energy, SAREF is a biennial conference that represents a 10-year thought leadership campaign, bringing together leaders and subject matter experts in the energy and sustainability sectors including c-suites, policy makers, academicians, civil societies and the media to talk about renewable energy and actionable solutions to build a more sustainable energy future for Southeast Asia.
Sarawak Energy organised the first Sustainability & Renewable Energy Forum in 2019. Anchored on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) with a focus on Goal No. 7, 13, 17, 11, 5 and 8, each subsequent SAREF conference provides the opportunity to review commitments made previously.
The session, “A Shared Energy Future” offers a balanced and forward-looking discussion on how ambitious net-zero targets at national, regional and global levels can be achieved through a just and inclusive energy transition driven by renewable energy development and regional interconnections.
Insights into the importance of integrated renewable energy frameworks and policies, as well as partnerships, to enable the acceleration of a just energy transition towards net zero in ASEAN.
How can interconnections equitably address the sharing of renewable energy resources across regions and markets, drawing examples from successful regions, to realise an interconnected ASEAN.
Deep-dive into climate action topics from countries’ commitments under the Paris Agreement, Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), as well as the role of corporates in developing a low-carbon ecosystem from climate action financing to the adoption of low-carbon technologies. Conclusions derived from this discussion will be developed into a position paper pitched towards COP 28.
Southeast Asia is in pressing need of strategies for clean energy solutions with the challenge of fulfilling the net-zero commitments by 2050 while balancing economic development and sustainability goals. Given that the energy sector remains the primary source of greenhouse gas emissions in the region, it becomes of paramount importance to concentrate efforts on this sector to implement effective and impactful measures.
Key stakeholders from the financial community will discuss why the integration of ESG into businesses and investments is a viable strategy that will generate positive ecological impacts and financial returns to companies and shareholders.
Explores the role of public policy, talent strategy and individual purpose in cultivating workforce readiness to ensure an equitable energy transition.
The business case for DEI within the renewable energy sector explores the responsibility of organisations to establish the right culture, policies and support to reduce inequities and promote inclusion across generations and demographics.
Experts, policymakers and industry leaders come together to discuss and explore sustainable strategies for decarbonising the transportation sector, with key discussions revolving around the importance of renewable energy in achieving green mobility goals.
Energy leaders share strategies, plans and insights on what it takes to deliver an accelerated and just energy transition in their markets, countries and regions. This will include practical and workable energy transition solutions, strengthening collaborations and partnerships, and how to share renewable energy resources effectively.
