Climate change: can business save the planet?

Climate change is widely regarded as now being at crisis point. What is the role of business in tackling the causes and effects of global warming?

This panel event will examine the role of business – including the UK financial industry – in supporting the transition to a cleaner and more sustainable economy. It will consider whether the business sector is doing enough, whether further policy interventions are required, how best to achieve a ‘just’ transition and how it should be financed.
