Post-COP26 Insights: How companies can accelerate their transition to Net-Zero
The climate talks in COP26, and the final ‘Glasgow Climate Pact’ have received mixed reviews. If you are a scientist in a research institution or an activist on the Glasgow streets, you may look at the outcomes with incredulity. If you are a geopolitical realist on the other hand, you will see that 196 parties have reached a consensus to move forward. Many important targets were missed, but some important barriers to progress were removed.
- Amidst the complex dynamics, what are the risks and opportunities for Asian business after Glasgow?
- Why is there increased urgency for the private sector to accelerate their transition to net-zero?
- How can companies make full use of the “Practical Net-Zero Guide for Business”- boldly launched by Hong Kong Exchange - to develop robust net-zero strategies within and beyond their value chains?
Join us as we deliver insights from thought leaders with their personal observations in COP26, highlights on the HKEX Net-Zero Guide and first-mover experience of leading companies in their net-zero journey.
對格拉斯哥的氣候談判和最終達成的《格拉斯哥氣候協定》，評價是褒貶不一的。如果你是研究機構的科學家或是格拉斯哥街頭的活躍份子，你可能對結果充滿疑惑。另一方面，如果你是個地緣政治現實主義者，你會看到 196 個國家已經達成了向前推進的共識；雖然 COP26 錯過了許多重要目標，但也消除了一些重要的進展障礙。
