About this talk

Green investment needs to scale rapidly to limit the rise of global temperatures to 1.5°C, with recent studies estimating that between US$109-275 trillion is required by 2050. The result is a green economy that is substantial and growing, representing 7.1% of global listed company market capitalisation and presenting a $7 trillion investment opportunity according to FTSE Russell research. Growing the green economy is important for participants across the financial ecosystem and is driven by public and private investments. LSEG is helping drive the growth of the green economy through the provision of data and market infrastructure, enabling investors to identify and act on investment opportunities. Join this upcoming webinar to hear our panel of experts discuss: • What will the world look like in 2050 and what needs to be done to reach the set targets • The current green economy landscape – where are the key opportunities, in which sectors and how will any challenges need to be overcome? • How are companies and investors are using green revenues data to reach their specific goals? • How to implement effective, decision useful ESG disclosures that reflect investor needs and regulatory requirements Speakers: Jane Goodland, Group Head of Sustainability, LSEG (Moderator) Lily Dai, Senior research Lead, Green Economy ESG, FTSE Russell Amy Smith, Senior Manager, Sustainable Finance, London Stock Exchange
