Climate change: the risk of doing nothing – 12pm on Wednesday 3 November

COP26; the global climate change conference, will showcase governments taking ambitious steps to reduce carbon emissions. Carbon regulation, litigation, growing public pressure and technological innovation pose existential risks to carbon, and those businesses polluting most.

In this inevitable carbon crisis, decarbonisation is the only way forward. In this webinar we will discuss the opportunities and the investment case for companies leading the charge.
