Welcome to S&P Global’s inaugural flagship Sustainable1 Event, providing essential intelligence to accelerate the transition to a low carbon, sustainable and equitable future.
Our research shows that major global companies are on track for a >3°C warming scenario, achieving just 7% of the emissions reductions needed by 2025 to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement. At the same time, just 49% of revenues of these companies are generated in business activities that support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
As the need for urgent action intensifies, we are gathering leading practitioners into one place to share pragmatic solutions and personal insights, digging deep into the three key themes of measuring progress, achieving net-zero, and improving transparency.
Financial institutions, regulators, market specialists, and corporations representing the entire investment chain will be gathered to discuss what is (and is not) working and what requires more attention to truly accelerate the transition to a sustainable and equitable future.
The global pandemic highlighted the value of environmental, social, and corporate governance considerations in capital markets – amplifying the call for more standardized, comprehensive, and actionable measurements. The content throughout the event will answer the question, “How can we efficiently scale the correct reporting disclosure throughout the global value chain?”
ACHIEVING NET ZERO
Current progress towards the Paris Agreement goals has been slow. However, the recent explosion of net zero commitments from companies, financial institutions, and countries provides much optimism. We will address the challenges of this goal from plotting the course to financing the ambition.
Accelerating progress on global climate and sustainability requires greater transparency to impact the decisions of financial institutions, companies, and everyday consumers. We will take an expedition through the details of delivering transparency across investment funds, bank loan books, companies, and product portfolios.
