Many of the largest publicly traded companies have rolled out plans to achieve net-zero carbon emissions, but others continue to lag. Meanwhile, pressure from investors and regulators is intensifying as businesses are increasingly expected to stretch beyond making pledges and move toward concrete, measurable near-term targets on the way to comply with international climate targets.
S&P Global will convene a panel of experts for a broad, cross-sector discussion of some of the obstacles companies across the world economy face in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and communicating those plans to investors. Topics reviewed will include:
- Bolder climate action from larger companies and new regulatory action are pushing pressure to act down the supply chain
- How various parts of the nation’s energy sector plan to decarbonize
- Computer chipmakers balance growth over green initiatives
- How the financial sector is approaching climate plans and winning buy-in
