Ice floating on water in Barentsburg, Svalbard

The other crisis: climate policy and the energy system


From: 04-June-2020 To: 04-June-2020

This year regulatory agencies were planning to force the largest companies in Europe to take a robust look at the financial impact of climate change. Then the health crisis hit, leading many to assume that green aspirations would fall victim to high-carbon economic stimulus packages – just as they had after the last financial crisis.

In a webinar on 4 June 2020, Andy Houston and Alex Luta discussed why the pandemic has not significantly affected the direction of travel, and why it is increasingly certain that the work of the Task-Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) will have affected virtually all major European businesses by 2022.

This webinar equips you to:

  • understand what your bank or equity investors mean when they ask how resilient your business model is to climate related risk;
  • recognise the complexity of the scenario-based analysis that stakeholders will demand;
  • reassess whether your low-carbon investment portfolio is financially viable; and
  • prepare your company for the forthcoming disclosure regime.
