  • This session aims to discuss the brazilian potential to contribute to decarbonization. The idea is to show public, private and academia sinergies in this agenda.
  • Moderator: Professor Patrícia Iglecias, Head of Environment USP, CEO, CETESB, Professor in Faculty of Law at the University of São Paulo.
  • Professor Paulo Artaxo, Professor in Physics at the University of São Paulo. Brazilian contributions to decarbonization and Paris Agreement Targets. Abstract: Brazil has many settlements to reduce GHG emissions, like eliminate deforestation until 2028 and reduce methane emissions in 30% until 2030. A discussion on Brazilian initiatives in energy, deforestation and agriculture as these are the most important emissions nowadays in the country.
  • Professor Paula Carvalho Pereda, Associate Professor in Economic at the University of São Paulo. Carbon market and welfare in the Brazilian economy – SDG 3 and 13. Abstract: How can we ensure access to energy and commodities needed for economic growth and human development without risking undermining the climate and environmental goals? A discussion on policies and initiatives to reduce Brazil’s footprint and on how to address the potential side effects on vulnerable populations.
  • Professor Sergio Pacca, Associate Professor at the School of Arts, Sciences and  Humanities at the University of São Paulo. The evolution of carbon balances and accounting that are fundamental for GHG inventories in countries like Brazil - SDG 3 and 15. Abstract: Considering that broadening the scope of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory is fundamental to mitigate climate change, modern accounting should go beyond territorial emissions and investigate repercussions along supply chains and carbon sinks that directly affect the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere. New nature-engineering methods promote harvesting planted trees and burying them as long-lasting CO2 sinks and will be crucial to countries like Brazil, considering land use change and forestry.
  • Plinio Ribeiro. CEO, Biofilica. Opportunities for carbon market in Brazil. - SDG 13. Abstract: There are many ways to implement the carbon market. The idea is to show private sector initiatives in Brazil.
  • Roberto Waack, Arapyaú Institute Board President. The power of collaboration between civil society and public and private sectors for fostering nature based solution. - SDG 13 and 15 Abstract: Show opportunities of restoration as a solution for decarbonization of the country.
  • Professor Julio Romano Meneghini, Full Professor of Applications and Principles in Mechanical Engineering, Escola Politécnica, University of São Paulo. Green Hydrogen and its role in the climate agenda – SDG 7. Abstract: Green hydrogen will play an important role in the decarbonization of the Brazilian Economy. In addition to conventional forms of production, such as through electrolysis employing solar and wind energy, the reform of bio-methane and/or ethanol to hydrogen production has shown enormous potential. In this presentation, green hydrogen production routes and the role of this fuel in the climate agenda are discussed.
