Now in its 11th year, this important event covers a variety of significant topics. This year the ‘carbon bubble and stranded asset’ issue will be at the forefront.

The term stranded assets, a term Carbon Tracker coined, is now effectively in the risk and investment lexicon.

It’s often used in the context of carbon exposure risk, but goes wider. Investments can be impaired, new risks may lurk.

The Governor of the Bank of England has referred to a Tragedy of Horizons.

With its long term horizon, actuarial work is well placed to add value around this issue.

Mark Campanale, Carbon Tracker’s Founder & Executive Director will take part to the plenary session focused on investigating the financial implications of climate change and the role of actuaries in ensuring a greater climate risk transparency by fossil fuel companies and investors.

16.30 -18 pm
