Green Gambit: Fuelling Global Power Competition Despite Aiming for Good?

Friday, February 16, 2024, 1:30 p.m. (CET)

Emerging threats at the nexus of global security and the ‘green transition’ have vast consequences. Western economies are competing with China through substantial decarbonization subsidies, investments and policies. Yet these methods have already strained transatlantic relations - pitting the European Union against the United States with the implementation of the IRA and business decisions made on this basis. The greatest peril looms if tensions with China deepen – fuelled by ties to Russia, or their state-driven industrial policies. Resulting economic retaliation could trigger a vicious cycle of subsidy-driven rivalry that sparks massive increases to public debt, and trade wars that fracture Transatlantic and Indo-Pacific interdependence to shift the balance of power. The Green Gambit convenes business, government, academic, and policy leaders from across critical regions to prompt answers on how nations and businesses can effectively navigate the green transition with the imperatives of global security, and avoid the consequences of intensifying conflict in an era of great power competition.
