Low Carbon Crossroad
The importance of metals and mining to the low carbon transition
PGIM Fixed Income’s James Malone, ESG Research Specialist, and Beth Gunning, Credit Analyst for Emerging Markets Corporate Bond Research, join David Klausner, ESG Research Specialist, for a deep dive into the critical role that metals and mining companies have in enabling the low carbon transition. Our panel explores a range of topics, including the dramatic increase for minerals as countries reduce their high carbon energy reliance, the implications of Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine on the supply and demand of critical metals, and the risks miners face as a result of historically poor environmental and social performance as the global community tries to deliver on ambitious climate goals.
