A Growing Gap: Exploring Progress on Global Decarbonisation
Exploring the widening gap between actual progress and policies on decarbonisation, and what would be needed to limit global warming to well below 2°C.
Climate finance has gained significant attention over the past decade due to the increase in extreme climate events around the world. While developed countries have been the largest contributors to climate change, it’s developing countries that often feel the worst of the impacts as they struggle to finance resources to respond, rebuild, and protect themselves from extreme weather events.
In this episode of Fixed on ESG, ESG Specialists, Nuvneet Dhillon, CFA, and Alistair Shepheard-Walwyn, examine the current state of international climate finance. The duo discuss how much climate finance is necessary, how we’ve integrated climate finance considerations into our sovereign ESG framework, how developed countries have kept up with providing the financing they’ve pledged, and more.
