The Accelerating Climate Impact: China-U.S. Collaboration and Investment Strategies Executive Education Program, organized by the California-China Climate Institute at UC Berkeley and CKGSB Americas, is a three-week long virtual learning journey for business executives and students to explore best-practices and potential collaboration, innovation, and investment opportunities between California and China.
The program offers extensive opportunities for executives to engage with high-level exchange with key governmental agencies, clean energy companies in the United States, and connect with the faculty community in the University of California system, including UC Berkeley.
In the immersive program, including content-rich sessions and ample networking opportunities, executives will learn the major concepts and policies in California and China in clean energy innovation and put these concepts to work. The program curriculum covers the following topics:
Session one will kick-off the program with high-level remarks from senior issue-experts from California and the U.S. sharing perspectives on tackling global climate change. This module will take a closer look at the latest climate science, U.S. and Chinese climate policy, climate risks and the nexus with COVID-19, and opportunities in energy efficiency and electrification.
Session two will focus on innovation opportunities and breakthrough technologies, including opportunities in California and China, long-term and net zero goals for business, and advanced technologies like carbon capture and storage.
Session three will turn to corporate finance and sustainability principles and climate risk management, sustainable development and the economics of renewable energy, carbon markets, and clean technology investment opportunities.
