Speaker: Philip Christiani, Partner at Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners
COP27 marked the 30th anniversary of the integration of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. After more than two weeks, climate negotiators in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, addressed the main threats posed by climate change in the hope of achieving concrete climate action and agreements on greenhouse gas emission reductions.
However, did COP27 really show unity from all parties and commitment to fight against climate change? Can we deliver a brighter future for our planet and its eight billion habitants? Is a 1.5°C pathway still possible? What are the key issues that need to be address in the future? How can Private Equity (PE) firms contribute to a sustainable future and the energy transition towards non-emitting sources?
The webinar will discuss:
- Outcomes of COP27: What major milestones and commitments were achieved? Which verticals achieved progress vs. COP26?
- What needs to be addressed in COP28?
- Global and regional challenges and opportunities for investments in energy infrastructure
- How can PE help navigate the physical and transitional risks that energy transition will encounter?
- Exploring Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners’s strategy and projects around the globe
The webinar will take place on Zoom at 5pm GMT on Monday, 5 December.
