The business model for many companies in the oil & gas sector seems to assume that demand will rise steadily for the foreseeable future. The Local Authority Pension Fund Forum (LAPFF) and Carbon Tracker Initiative believe that planning on this outcome risks over-investment, potentially destroying shareholder value.
On 21st July, LAPFF and Carbon Tracker are launching the report ‘Engaging for a Low Carbon Transition’ which sets out why a 2˚C business model can be less risky than ‘business-as-usual’ for oil and gas companies. The study explains what this means for shareholder value and gives very practical ‘hands on’ guidance on how to engage with companies on the low carbon transition and the degree to which investments are ‘two-degree’ compliant.
The event will take place in the auditorium at:
Aberdeen Asset Management,
Bow Bells House,
1 Bread St,
London EC4M 9HH.
4:45pm: Introduction from LAPFF Chair, Cllr Kieran Quinn, followed by presentations by Mark Campanale, Founder and Executive Director at Carbon Tracker and Paul Spedding Former Global Co-Head of Oil And Gas Research at HSBC and Advisor of Carbon Tracker Initiative
5:15pm: Q&A session
5:30-6:30pm: Drinks reception
The audience for the events is 80 senior figures from institutional investors, asset management firms, energy analysts, fossil-fuel sector and policy makers.
