Details

Investors are now playing a critical role in driving climate action. Market practice is evolving rapidly. Delivering on the promise of net zero by 2050 is key, as focus turns to driving implementation and real-world outcomes by 2030 through shareholder engagement, investment, risk management and disclosure.

The policy landscape has shifted dramatically. The ambitious goals of the Biden Administration, commitments to net zero and enabling policies in China, Japan and South Korea and the COP26 Presidency of the UK are ratcheting up expectations for delivering on the promise of the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to 1.5ºC.

For Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific, the financial risks for business and investors are acute and government and financial regulators will continue to re-shape investor practice.

Against this backdrop of heightened urgency, a changed policy landscape and more investor action on climate, IGCC will again bring together leading experts and market practitioners to unpack and discuss the latest and next generation of investor practice on climate change.
