Meeting with Mr. Michał Kurtyka, Minister of Climate

Start: 2020-06-24 10:30
End: 2020-06-24 12:00

We are pleased to invite you to our next on-line meeting on Wednesday, June 24th, at 10:30 a.m.– noon on Poland's potential pathway to carbon neutrality.

We are delighted to be joined at the event by Mr. Michał Kurtyka, Minister of Climate, who will give opening remarks.

The event will include a presentation of the key insights from McKinsey's new report titled: Carbon-neutral Poland 2050. Turning a challenge into an opportunity by Marcin Purta, McKinsey's Managing Partner in Poland and Gustaw Szarek, Associate Partner at McKinsey's Warsaw Office.


According to the McKinsey report, achieving climate neutrality by 2050 is within Poland's grasp – but it will be a significant challenge. Thanks to decarbonization at a potential extra cost of EUR 380 billion, the country could improve its energy independence and reduce operational costs by around EUR 75 billion. Decarbonization could also contribute to the development of new economic sectors and create as many as 300,000 jobs.

AmCham Chairman Tony Housh will lead the discussion focused on potential benefits and challenges related to making the Polish economy carbon-neutral.

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, June 24th, at 10:30 – 12:00.
