The Net Zero Delivery Summit will be held in the Mansion House in London in 2019 and livestreamed to a global online audience, the City of London Corporation and the COP Egyptian Presidency 2022 announced on 9 November 2022.

To celebrate the halfway point between COP27 in Egypt and COP28 in the United Arab Emirates, this Summit is scheduled to take place in May 2023. It will be centred on how to address climate change and its effects on communities in a fair and inclusive manner, especially in developing nations.

The event will expand upon the initial summit, which was held earlier this year by the City Corporation as a part of the UK’s COP chairmanship and featured speakers including John Kerry and Mark Carney. Global leaders from the world of business, government, and other institutions will be gathered there.

The City Corporation’s Policy Chairman made the initial announcement about the Summit this afternoon at a COP27 event held in the Egyptian Pavilion.

“There is no pathway to sustainable economic growth around the world unless we deliver on the terms of the Glasgow Climate Pact.

“A crucial pre-condition of the Pact’s success is the pursuit of an economic transition that is fair, just and inclusive.

“That is why the Egyptian COP Presidency, and the City of London Corporation are partnering to host the Net Zero Delivery Summit in London, in 2023.

“This event will focus squarely on delivering a just transition to net zero. The financial and professional services sector has a critical role to play in mobilising capital into emerging markets to support mitigation, adaptation and resilience.

“This Summit will showcase the very best examples of what is working, on the ground, from around the world, to deliver net zero in a just and inclusive fashion.

“This will inform and inspire business leaders and policymakers as we collectively take the necessary steps towards addressing the climate crisis.”

– Chris Hayward, Policy Chairman of the City of London Corporation
