26 October 2015
Chatham House, London
Mark Campanale, founder and executive director of Carbon Tracker, will be speaking at Climate Change 2015: Building Agreement Towards 2°C, Paris and Beyond, alongside Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the UNFCCC, Amber Rudd, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, and others.
With the deadline for a UN climate deal fast approaching, what are the prospects for limiting global warming to 2°C?
The US and China’s commitments to reduce carbon emissions give cause for optimism, but it is increasingly clear that national mitigation commitments will not together prevent dangerous anthropogenic climate change. The 19th Annual Chatham House Climate Change Conference will assess what steps must be taken to complete a deal and discuss the roles of non-state actors in building an effective international climate regime. Looking beyond Paris, it will consider the prospects for implementation and explore what mechanisms are needed to achieve long-term climate objectives.
Mark Campanale will take part in a panel on October 26, from 16:20-17:30, discussing future climate finance.
Key questions include:
- What will be the role of finance in closing the post-Paris emissions gap?
- Given the finite amounts of available capital where does it need to be invested? Where are the gaps and imbalances and what is the role of public finance and policy in addressing this?
- Can shareholders balance fossil fuel divestment with their fiduciary responsibility?
- How can financial policy and regulation address climate risk and harness the assets with the global financial system?
