Workshops 2019
Decarbonising Portfolios: Rome - 19th November 2019

Developing the transition process towards decarbonisation

Although Italy is due to co-host COP26 with the UK, it still has a number of issues to address in its national energy and climate plan (NECP) that will impact investors. The European Commission has called on Member States to establish clear short- and long-term targets consistent with the goals of the Paris Agreement and to provide investment support for net-zero pathways. The new EC commissioner, Ursula von der Leyen, has promised to reduce EU wide CO2 emissions by 2030 by up to 55% and to enshrine in law a European Union-wide 2050 net-zero emissions target.

This workshop will help investors navigate the options and approaches available to taking active approaches to managing carbon and climate risks, promote best practice and source responsible investment options across markets.
