Lord Stern at the LSE: The urgency, opportunity and acceleration of climate action

May 29, 04:00 AM
We’ve heard a lot about the need for urgent climate action in the past few months. Sobering documentaries from David Attenborough and hard-hitting activism from Greta Thunberg and the Extinction Rebellion have brought the issue to the forefront of people’s minds. Investors have a pivotal role in meeting the challenge of financing the transition to a low-carbon future and in finding the wealth of returns opportunities that a low-carbon transition presents.
 
This week we’re coming to you from the studios at the London Stock Exchange after having interviewed the Lord Nicholas Stern, Chair of the Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy. Lord Stern joined us for our panel webinar ESG: What to know and what to do with LGIM’s Head of Institutional Clients, Mark Johnson, and others on the importance of environmental, social and governance risks and opportunities to investments.
 
Without a hint of irony, this episode recording was almost delayed due to Extinction Rebellion protestors having super-glued themselves to the entrance of the LSE.
