The recent IPCC Report highlighted increasing urgency for the global transition to net-zero emissions, and therefore the need to scale market solutions, evolve policies and accelerate action on climate. An earlier IEA report highlighted challenging boundaries for energy transitions to keep average global warming to 1.5C. Internationally, countries and regions are strengthening targets and policies to address this urgency. Join us as we discuss international investor and corporate perspectives and actions after these reports.
Our experts will also take a deep dive into the implications of the EU Commission ‘Fit for 55’ proposals for carbon markets, transport, land use and carbon border adjustment mechanisms (CBAMs). With the US, Japan, Canada and the UK exploring similar models, investors are looking to the opportunities in the net-zero transition and to reduce their exposure to corporations and countries without coherent strategies.
