Webinar: The role of the financial sector in the transition to net zero
February 28, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Guest speakers: Chris Faint, Bank of England and Professor Nick Robins, Grantham Research Institute.
As the UK continues its COP presidency following the climate summit in Glasgow last November, this webinar will look at what action industry, government and the central bank will be required to take to realise the bold ambitions set out at COP26 for the UK to become the world’s first net zero-aligned financial centre.
During the meeting, the APPG will look at what this this means for constituents and the need to ensure the economic transformation is just, fair and inclusive – bringing benefits to the real economy and communities across the UK.
We are delighted to have with us our guest speakers, Sarah Breeden, who leads the Bank of England’s work on climate change, and Professor Nick Robins, lead professor in practice at the Grantham Research Institute. They will also be joined by an industry speaker.
