    • Overcoming barriers to  carbon capture through international collaboration
      Overcoming barriers to carbon capture through international collaboration Toby Lockwood Upcoming: Sep 27 2017 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    • Carbon capture and storage must be implemented on a global scale if ambitious targets for greenhouse gas emissions are to be met, yet deployment of the technology over the last decade has been slow. CCS faces a number of unique barriers, including high upfront costs and investment risks, uncertain public and political support, and a need for new regulatory regimes. To help overcome these barriers, a number of formal collaborations have been established between countries with commitments to CCS development. Multilateral initiatives such as the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum and the Clean Energy Ministerial have sought to share research experience, spread favourable policy and regulation, promote public acceptance, and build mutual trust on commitment to CCS. Several bilateral agreements, often between an OECD country and China, have also been created over the last decade with a view to promote investment and joint research into CCS. This webinar will briefly review the barriers to CCS development and highlight the work of some key multilateral and bilateral initiatives, as well as the challenges they have faced.

    • Smart Beta & Low Carbon
      Smart Beta & Low Carbon Eric Shirbini, Global Product Specialist with ERI Scientific Beta; Moderator, Brendan Maton Recorded: Jun 21 2016 2:00 pm UTC 70 mins
    • EDHEC Risk Institute has been conducting research for several years on the possibility of reconciling financial and environmental performance. The launch of a new series of low carbon indices by ERI Scientific Beta, the smart beta index provider set up by EDHEC Risk Institute in 2012, marks the practical realisation of these research efforts and represents an important moment for responsible finance, because the results of the research undertaken will provide institutional investors with smart beta indices that can reduce the carbon footprint of their equity investments by more than 80%, while at the same time outperforming traditional market indices and being able to create more than 50% additional value in the medium term.
       
      EDHEC Risk Institute's approach can be distinguished from numerous approaches that, over the long term, hope to outperform the stock markets through the higher returns of shares in firms that have a better carbon footprint, because these firms are supposedly less affected by the increasing cost of fossil fuels and the tons of carbon emitted, but that, in the short and medium term, aim to produce performance that is fairly similar to that of traditional stock market indices.
       
      •Topics covered include:
      •The limits of green stock picking
      •How to perform financially whilst reducing the carbon footprint
      •Presentation of Scientific Beta Low Carbon Multi-Beta Multi-Strategy Indices

    • Next generation carbon capture technologies for coal
      Next generation carbon capture technologies for coal Toby Lockwood Recorded: Apr 27 2016 11:00 am UTC 38 mins
    • Established CO2 capture technologies such as absorption with amine solvents are associated with significant energetic and economic penalties, reducing power plant efficiency by around 10% points and increasing the cost of electricity production by up to 80%. Dedicated research programmes worldwide have pursued the development of a wide range of innovative, alternative technologies for CO2 capture, largely by addressing the fundamental gas separation step at the heart of post-combustion, pre-combustion or oxyfuel combustion processes. Novel solvents with lower energy requirements than conventional amines, using phase change systems, ionic liquids, enzyme-activation, or non-aqueous solvents, are promising approaches for post-combustion capture. Alternatively, techniques used in other commercial gas separations, including solid sorbents, membranes, and cryogenic separation, have also been developed for carbon capture through extensive materials research and process optimisation. Whilst challenging for post-combustion capture applications, these techniques may be of particular benefit to pre-combustion capture systems where much higher partial pressures of CO2 are available, and integration of the CO2 capture step and water gas shift reaction can be achieved using sorbents or membranes. In oxyfuel combustion, membranes are also an option for efficient oxygen production, but pressurised combustion systems have demonstrated the most potential for efficiency improvements, potentially in combination with novel power cycles which are better-suited to exploiting the altered combustion conditions. Finally, chemical looping combustion is a unique approach to carbon capture which can achieve dramatic energy savings through its inherent avoidance of any gas separation step, and is undergoing significant scale up. This webinar will review these developments in novel capture technologies and highlight the most promising strategies for achieving major cost reductions.

    • Managing Climate Risk with Low Carbon Indexes
      Managing Climate Risk with Low Carbon Indexes Brendan Maton Recorded: Jun 8 2015 2:00 pm UTC 67 mins
    • As the global economy copes with the unpredictable challenges of climate change, institutional investors are exploring the potential impact of these changes on financial assets. With recent announcements by the Financial Stability Board in Basel and the Bank of England to examine the risks posed by ‘Stranded Assets’, more investors are calculating their exposure to high carbon assets and looking for ways to diversify into low or no carbon alternatives.

      There are a growing number of options available to institutional investors. Some Asset Owners have announced plans to divest from high carbon assets, while others have looked to low carbon indexes which either exclude or reweight exposure to carbon-intensive companies while limiting short-term risk against the benchmark.
We invite you to join a discussion with leading experts to examine the extent to which asset owners feel they are exposed to climate risk; the role of asset managers to encourage good practice when addressing climate change and carbon risk and how asset managers can effectively implement a low carbon strategy through index funds.

    • 4 Reasons Next-Generation Antivirus Should Be Your Next Managed Service
      4 Reasons Next-Generation Antivirus Should Be Your Next Managed Service John Collins, SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit Principal Architect | Mike Viscuso, Carbon Black CTO Upcoming: Sep 26 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • There seems to be no shortage of threats these days with attackers constantly innovating and combining different techniques with classic malware. New ransomware variants, targeted espionage campaigns, and attacks that don’t use malware at all are just a few threats that put your organization at risk. As each new attack generates global headlines, it can feel a bit overwhelming.

      It’s increasingly clear that the signature-based approach of traditional antivirus (AV) can no longer provide the protection needed to keep attackers off your endpoints. Join John Collins, SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit Principal Architect and Mike Viscuso, Carbon Black CTO, as they discuss how managed Next-Generation Antivirus (NGAV) goes beyond malware prevention to ensure that organizations of all sizes stay out of the security headlines and one step ahead of emerging cyber threats.

      You will learn:
      • What are the indicators that I need NGAV?
      • How do I know when it is time to make the move from traditional AV to NGAV?
      • Why is managed NGAV better able to address Ransomware, PowerShell and WMI threats?
      • What managed NGAV can do for you

    • The Rise of Malware-less Attacks: How Can Endpoint Security Keep Up?
      The Rise of Malware-less Attacks: How Can Endpoint Security Keep Up? Paul Morville, Carbon Black, Chris Sherman, Forrester Research, Adrian Davis, (ISC)² EMEA Recorded: Jan 30 2017 1:30 pm UTC 61 mins
    • The security industry is witnessing a rapid evolution in attack techniques - including advanced polymorphic malware and file-less attacks. In fact, according to the 2016 Verizon Data Breach Report, the majority of breaches (53%) involve no malware.

      Clearly, traditional antivirus (AV) solutions no longer stop advanced attacks. Modern attackers can easily get their hands on the static and highly predictable prevention models used by legacy AV vendors, which means they can reliably bypass them. Unfortunately, many emerging “next-gen” vendors are using approaches that fall victim to the same fundamental flaw.

      In this webinar with guest speaker Chris Sherman, Senior Analyst at Forrester Research, we will discuss the latest trends in endpoint security, including results from The Forrester Wave™: Endpoint Security Suites, Q4 2016. Carbon Black's Paul Morville will talk about how to stop these pervasive attack techniques.

      Topics Covered On the Webinar:
      •Forrester analysis on new security threats and the need for a next-generation of endpoint security
      •Forrester Endpoint Security Wave Report results
      •How next-gen antivirus makes it harder for attackers to achieve their objectives
