As part of the PRI Digital Conference, the PRI and the LSEG will be co-hosting the sixth and final event in the PRI and LSEG COP26 Investor Action on Climate Series, ‘Industrial Transition to Net Zero - How can business and the investment sector come together to achieve global decarbonisation?’.

In the final event we will bring together all the different climate investment and finance initiatives through the prism of investor-corporate engagement. The current global emissions trajectory is not consistent with the need to avoid disastrous levels of global warming. To avoid this and to enable the industrial transition to net zero there must be a very clear and direct engagement between the providers of capital (investment/finance) and the users of the capital (global business community). This event will represent a critical final milestone jumping off point ahead of COP26 to examine the status of current shareholder engagement, active ownership approaches and how both sides can contribute to achieving a step change in direction at COP26.
