With new awareness of the systemic risks if global temperatures rise above 1.5℃, investors, companies and policymakers have begun making commitments to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

In this session, participants will:

  • Explore how major asset owners decided to commit to net-zero portfolios
  • Compare corporate strategies to set and meet ambitious carbon reduction goals
  • Evaluate the critical role of policymakers in enabling deep carbon emissions reductions
