Efficient, joined-up carbon markets are an essential tool to support the transition to net zero.

UK Sustainable Infrastructure Summit - 6 July 2023

This Summit addressed the urgent need for the UK to rapidly decarbonise energy generation and transport so that the UK can meet its net zero targets. The speakers assessed the investment environment and the relative attractiveness of the UK, given the U.S. IRA and the emerging EU equivalent, as well as  a range of other relevant issues. There was a detailed focus on the opportunities and challenges in delivering the government’s sustainable infrastructure plans, including the government’s revised Net Zero Strategy and Green Finance Strategy.

The Financial Services Climate Adaptation Summit - 13 March 2023

As was clear from COP 27, countries and individual governments are struggling to prevent temperatures rising by more than 1.5 degrees by 2050, and the outlook is bleak. Meanwhile, in the UK as elsewhere, we are seeing extreme weather conditions, which will continue to worsen as we approach 2050, and perhaps beyond.

Against this background, financial institutions of all kinds – banks, asset managers and insurers – need to put in place climate adaptation plans as part of their overall business continuity planning. These need to include the direct impact of climate change on running their own businesses and the indirect impact of the changing climate on borrowers, investee companies, policy holders, suppliers, employees and other stakeholders.
