Understanding the impact of climate change on the global economy is a difficult exercise. Though with many experts already pointing to the huge repercussions of stranded fossil fuel assets, environmental degradation and the depletion of natural resources, there are significant implications for industry and government alike. Simultaneously, across the world we are already beginning to see how a greener, zero-carbon mode of production is fundamentally reconfiguring existing economic structures.

Join us for the first of a series of events looking at the impacts of climate change, to hear from Jean-Francois Coppenolle, Head of Credit and Sustainability Risk at Aviva, as he discusses:

  • The potential economic impact of climate change and the destruction of natural resources and ecosystem services
  • How the global economy must adjust to keep global temperature increases at 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels
  • How divestment from fossil fuels and investment in green assets, bonds and technologies will be fundamental to a transition into a zero-carbon global economy
  • Jean-Francois Coppenolle
