The growing wave of governments and corporations pledging to achieve net-zero carbon emissions presents financial institutions with tremendous investment opportunities -- along with new challenges in managing capital and risk.

China's 2060 carbon neutrality target is particularly significant. Signaling a momentous shift in long-term policy direction, it is certain to disrupt the world's energy economy, impacting sector decarbonization pathways in the short and medium terms and spurring innovations in investment strategies.


Join us for a BloombergNEF webinar to learn how financial institutions can navigate this rapidly changing landscape and capitalize on emerging opportunities. Our panel of experts will discuss the most important climate-related issues and events of 2021, including the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), the EU Taxonomy and China's low-carbon transition.
