The Future of Energy, Resources and Climate Change in a Disruptive World

The Future of Energy, Resources and Climate Change in a Disruptive World

Energy supplies and markets are under pressure due to geopolitical conflicts and competition for key resources. At the same time, the world's leading economies and companies have committed to climate action, including carbon reduction targets and acclerating the clean energy transition. With the war in Ukraine and sanctions on Russia impacting energy supply in Europe, China-Australia diplomatic relations remaining strained, and inflation on the rise across developed economies, energy security and affordability will continue to dominate our news headlines and business planning in the years to come.

Join us for a fireside chat with Vijay on the future of energy, resources and environment in a disruptive world--geopolitics, climate, the energy transition and how it will affect Asia.

SPEAKER(S)

Vijay Vaitheeswaran
Global Energy & Climate Innovation Editor | The Economist

Vijay is the Global Energy & Climate Innovation Editor of The Economist and host of its podcast on climate change, “To a Lesser Degree.” His editorial responsibilities range from business and finance to technology and innovation, and he has produced numerous cover stories and won awards for his reporting. He is also the author of three well-received books and an accomplished public speaker. The Financial Times has declared him to be “a writer to whom it is worth paying attention.”


From 2017 to 2021, he served as the New York-based US Business Editor. He opened the magazine’s first Shanghai bureau in 2012, and served as its China Business Editor until mid-2017. He led the editorial team that launched Economist Global Business Review, a successful app that is the first bilingual product offered by The Economist in its 180-year history.


His latest book is “Need, Speed and Greed: How the New Rules of Innovation Can Transform Businesses, Propel Nations to Greatness, and Tame the World’s Most Wicked Problems". Kirkus Reviews declares it to be “a perfect primer for the post-industrial age” and Amazon named it a Selection of the Month. His previous books have also created a stir, with accolades ranging from lengthy reviews in The New Yorker to shortlisting for the McKinsey/ Financial Times Business Book of the Year prize.
