This is a digital only ThinkIn, hosted on Zoom.
In recent years, there has been a storm of climate promises from businesses large and small, from reducing greenhouse gas emissions to ambitious plans to achieve net zero by 2050, or earlier. The road to decarbonisation presents the greatest economic opportunity since the Industrial Revolution, estimated at $4tn of investment in clean energy technologies every single year by 2030. It’s no longer a nice-to-have but a planet and profit imperative for business to step into the ring on green commitments. And yet, amidst much talk, there is still little practical action on decarbonisation.
So, what are the business barriers to meaningful action on decarbonisation? Will abating emissions require a carrot or stick, and scale or innovation? Where can investors, businesses and policy makers turn to understand what a cost-effective carbon transition looks like? How can market conventions be driven to catalyse the change required to reach net zero? And without a standard approach for decarbonisation, how can investments be evaluated to maximise returns and deliver transformative change?
Join CPP Investments, in partnership with Tortoise, for a practical conversation on shared challenges, opportunities, and learnings to tangibly move the needle forwards on decarbonisation.
