Event description
An opportunity to hear low carbon energy experts discuss the investments needed and being taken to reach net zero 2050.

About this Event

Energy Connectors LTD in association with Transition Lab offers an opportunity to attend ‘Investing In A Zero Carbon Future’ mini conference. Registration from 10am for a 10.30am start

Being Chaired by Michael Barlow, Partner at Burges Salmon LLP, an award-winning renewable energy independent law firm that deliver ground-breaking projects and unparalleled expertise in renewable energy law, this is the 2nd in the series of events of two 45-minute Panel Discussions (separated by a 45-minute networking lunch) brings together a mix of professionals at the heart of the push to reach net zero by 2050.

From Investors, Fund Managers, Economists and Scientists, to Climate Change Experts, Corporate Lawyers, Tax Specialists, Government and Policy Advisors, the event provides a platform to renewables, nuclear and gas majors who are investing, researching and developing toward a zero-carbon future.

The European Investment Bank has vowed to end its multibillion-euro financing for fossil fuel projects by the end of 2020 in order to align its strategy with climate targets.

Investors and asset owners that are serious about considering climate-change risk recognise that more regulation and pressure is coming. Investors must therefore be prepared.

The world and the investment landscape have changed dramatically in the past five years. One of the major developments has been the emergence of ESG integration & Impact Investment, climate risk and transitioning to a low-carbon economy as important points of focus for investors, policy makers and companies alike.

Today, an onslaught of sustainability challenges exists due to policy, technological or climatic changes – and they are happening faster and more dramatically than many could have anticipated.
