How to play your part
COP26 and the journey to net zero
09 Nov 2021 : 10:00 - 11:00
This November, the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) will be hosted in Glasgow. This event brings together world leaders to progress the goals of the Paris Agreement to limit global temperature rises to 1.5oC and reduce carbon emissions. Reaching this target requires concerted policy action and is dependent on countries accelerating their plans to reach net zero emissions. Significant change is needed over the next decade.
The global scale of the challenges ahead can often feel insurmountable, but financial institutions will have a significant impact on whether or not we are successful, reflected in the “mobilise finance” goal of COP26.
Join our virtual event, where Simon Jones, Head of Responsible Investment, will set the scene on how financial institutions can take action. This will be followed by more in-depth streams focused on the DB, LGPS, DC, Insurance and Retail Advisory markets, where our experts and guest speakers will set out the clear actions and strategies you can employ.
Register today to make sure your organisation is ready to play its part. More information about each session can be found on the registration page.
