IPFA UK: London: COP23: Outcomes and Impact on the Energy and Infrastructure Sector
The 23rd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), COP23 in Bonn, Germany, concluded on Friday 17th November.
One of the key visions for COP23 was to harness innovation, enterprise and investment to fast track the development and deployment of climate solutions in an effort to limit the rise of global temperatures to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.
Further, Faster, Together was the moto. So were expectations around COP met? What are the key strategic themes for business coming out of COP? What are the biggest challenges the industry face and how can we maximise the opportunities?
Topics will include:
- How are the UN climate change negotiations relevant for infrastructure and project finance pipeline?
- Will the Paris Agreement hold in light of the current US administration’s views on climate change?
- Where are the opportunities for investment and what are the challenges related to climate resilient projects
- How is the investment community responding to the low carbon transition and the move towards resilient infrastructure?
- What impact will enhanced disclosure requirements on climate risk and opportunities have on the market?
