Market Transformation and Climate Change: Opportunities, Risks and Investments
Citigroup Smith Barney, Executive Conference Room
A scientific consensus that has all but ended the debate on climate change has spawned many initiatives to address climate change using market mechanisms. Local governments, institutional and private investors, as well as global private companies are calling for carbon to be regulated and investment risk to be quantified. This panel will explore local efforts to limit emissions, quantify climate risk and understand how companies are responding through voluntary standards, local regulation, and the trading of carbon.
