After a year of extreme weather events and the sobering report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), all eyes are on the UN Climate Change Conference, COP26. In this episode, our experts discuss what to expect from COP26 and how governments, companies and investors can accelerate the transition to net zero.
The need for urgent climate action has never been more critical and time is running out faster than anticipated. The potential cost of inaction could be 3% of GDP lost each year by the end of this decade and will significantly impact future corporate earnings. This is the last decade for the world to transition to net zero emissions. Expectations are high for COP26, where nations will update their emissions reduction pledges for the first time since the Paris Agreement in 2015.
What should we expect from COP26? What can governments, companies and investors do to accelerate the transition to net zero? Which are the most promising green technologies in the near term? Tune in to hear from Jens Peers, CEO & CIO of Mirova US, in conversation with Cheryl Tan, Head of Fund Specialists Singapore at Julius Baer.
