This unique event is the first in our series of invitation-only, C-suite-level gatherings that allow senior members of the business community to discuss critical issues in key sectors of the economy.
Climate will be the world’s largest and most important industry for decades to come — and is the defining challenge of our generation. It cuts across every industry, from banking and finance to infrastructure, urban planning, real estate, FMCG and beyond.
The Enterprise Climate X Forum, scheduled for 6 December 2022 takes place post COP27 and will give CEOs, investors, bankers, development finance institutions and other key stakeholders the opportunity to talk frankly, openly and under Chatham House rules about climate.
Enterprise’s senior editors will welcome attendees with good coffee and fresh pastries, giving all of us the opportunity to see friends and colleagues face-to-face in a relaxed setting.
The gathering gets underway with a brief scene-setter for the day.
What is green hydrogen? Where does it fit into our energy mix? Do we have enough renewable energy capacity to make it work? What about industry supply constraints? Our panel will go deep into the meaning of the USD 85 bn worth of framework agreements we inked at Sharm El Sheikh — and the signs along the road that will tell you that our hydrogen future is becoming a reality.
EFG Hermes Research Head of Strategy Simon Kitchen joins us on stage to talk about how business leaders across global growth markets are coping with climate change. Simon covers markets ranging from Egypt to Vietnam, Pakistan, Nigeria, Bangladesh and Kenya and regularly speaks with senior management from companies across the full spectrum of industries, from banks to electronics assemblers, garment markets to food producers.
Panelists will discuss where the opportunities fall in the adaptation vs. mitigation debate; how to build a new business on climate; and how leaders of established businesses can improve margins, access finance, and grow their business by putting climate into their business models.

Located just two kilometers from the Pyramids of Giza, the new museum complex occupies a total land area of 500,000 square meters and is home to the world’s largest archaeological museum.
Situated between the ancient Great Pyramids and the modern city of Cairo, at the junction between the dry desert and the fertile floodplain of the Nile, the Grand Egyptian Museum is a portal to the past, present, and future of Egypt.
More than 5,000 years of Egyptian civilization will be represented throughout the museum’s galleries, beginning with the vast Grand Hall where the 3,200-year-old, 83-ton Statue of Ramesses II will greet visitors as they embark on an exploration of the museum’s collection of around 50,000 artefacts.
In the Grand Egyptian Museum, visitors will see the entirety of the King Tutankhamun treasure reunited for the first time. In addition to the site’s main galleries and exhibition spaces, the Grand Egyptian Museum will feature a unique combination of other facilities and outdoor spaces, creating a truly world-class destination demonstrating the progress, evolution, and development of Egyptian civilization.
These features include the Children’s Museum, a temporary exhibition space, a library, an education center, and an augmented reality experience within the main museum building. Another section will house office spaces, an auditorium, a conference center, retail space, food and beverage options, and fine-dining restaurants. Outdoor spaces will include the Sculpture Garden, Palm Garden, and Terrace Garden.
When we meet, COP27 will be in the rearview mirror and COP28 in the UAE nearly a year away.
