DEI Seminar Series: Financing net zero: how the financial sector is shaping low-carbon innovation

1:00pm to 2:00pm, E245, Engineering Department, Dr Bregje Van Veelen

Finance plays a key role in enabling or constraining low-carbon transitions. Signatories to the 2015 Paris Agreement are committed to ‘Making finance flows consistent with a pathway towards low greenhouse gas emissions and climate-resilient development’. As countries step up their commitment to achieving ‘net zero’, the growth of green finance is increasingly vital. As a growing number of scenarios are produced indicating the likely scale and nature of the investments required, social research insights can provide insights into the ways in which investment is taking place and its consequences for society and environment across diverse contexts, from local to global.
