The transition to a low carbon economy has profound implications for the global economy. The transition is also urgent: economic growth, and financial returns, rely on the viability of social and environmental systems, many of which are under threat. The transition needs to work for markets and for people, and socially just, taking into account the needs of workers and affected communities. This session will discuss the need for a whole-of-government approach to drive the economic transition, and how investors can support and benefit from an effective, ambitious transition to net zero.
