About this event

International CSR & Sustainability (ICS) Summit 2022

The ZERO Shift

Zero Emissions | Zero Waste | Zero Inequality

Since the launch of the Race to Zero campaign, the world has been journeying towards Zero in a race to halve global emissions by 2030. At this year’s ICS summit, we not only refer to limiting global temperature to 1.5°C, but wastes, packaging, and inequality are just as worthy of our attention and have equal significance on the sustainability equation. While pledging to achieve carbon net zero by 2050 is a worthy goal, what this does, however, is zoning in on just one single element of the whole sustainability equation.

The theme, “The ZERO Shift”, applies the net zero approach to all aspects of sustainability, that means, to the entirety of the sustainability equation, giving equal weight to zero emissions, zero wastes, and zero inequality. Through working together, we can help protect the future of the next generations to come and the way we change for good.

Zero Emissions

The climate crisis encompasses a range of issues, including deforestation, the destruction of biodiversity, pollution, and human rights, among others. Ultimately, these are about the health and resiliency of the planet and humans. The recent COP26 has spurred forth another tidal wave of corporate pledges to achieve carbon net zero by 2050. Ambitious actions are needed, not just pledges, we need to have meaningful progress to find the best path to achieve net zero emissions.

Zero Waste

The circular strategy can be a key part of a climate change strategy that reduces our greenhouse gas emissions. A limited supply of resources, the increase of plastic production, by applying a net zero approach to this part of the equation conserves natural resources and reduce GHG by limiting extraction, manufacturing, and disposal.

Zero Inequality

When natural disasters occur, a knock-on effect from climate change leads to devastating outcomes for disadvantaged countries and vulnerable groups, deepening inequality and poverty. The global pandemic also increases other inequality issues including employees’ rights and welfare, gender and income inequality, it is still up to corporations and down to everyone to stand by our commitments to do the right things and ensure no one is left behind.
