About this event

In this second of MSSI’s Climate Change series ‘Towards 2030: Climate Action for the Crucial Decade Ahead’ we focus on the economic dimensions.

The role of investment in climate action is a crucial part of the Paris Agreement. Government and industry have the potential to participate in a virtuous circle of rising ambition to decarbonise the economy.

In this webinar, Professor Tom Kompas explores his recent research which quantifies damages of climate impacts, and models the economic benefits of strong climate action.

Emma Herd discusses the opportunities for business from clean investment strategies and the risks businesses face if they fail to adapt to a decarbonising economy.

Ian Learmonth provides learnings on how to facilitate clean energy investment and the types of relative low cost investments that need to be accelerated to achieve the 2030 goals.

Followed by Q&A discussion, moderated by Professor Don Henry.
