The other crisis: climate policy and the energy system
This year regulatory agencies were planning to force the largest companies in Europe to take a robust look at the financial impact of climate change.
Then the health crisis hit, leading many to assume that green aspirations would fall victim to high-carbon economic stimulus packages – just as they had after the last financial crisis.
In a webinar on 4 June 2020, Andy Houston and Alex Luta discuss why the pandemic has not significantly affected the direction of travel, and why it is increasingly certain that the work of the Task-Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) will have affected virtually all major European businesses by 2022.
This webinar equipped attendees to:
- understand what banks or equity investors mean when they ask how resilient a business model is to climate related risk;
- recognise the complexity of the scenario-based analysis that stakeholders will demand;
- reassess whether a low-carbon investment portfolio is financially viable; and
- prepare for the forthcoming disclosure regime.
