Association Webinars: The Energy Transition: A View from the Finance World


Slides: View


This webinar will examine the Energy Transition from the view of the financial markets. It will take a look at how investors and debt providers have looked at the transition over the last decade and why 2020 could go down as a pivotal year in the fight against climate change. 2020 will be seen as the year when the financial markets began to see climate risk as investment risk and to change capital allocation away from fossil fuels to all things green and clean. This of course begs questions whether this is a short term or a long term phenomenon.
