Climate change, carbon mitigation and a just transition

15 Jul, 2022 | Return|

“Net zero involves as much mitigation possible before you start to do the offsetting. From a systems perspective, there is only so much the land, forestry, agriculture, etc. can absorb and we think it’s about 5 gigatonnes. So we need to shrink global emissions to 5 gigatonnes from the 50 it is today.”

This final panel of Responsible Pathway Live explored the hot topic of climate change with four industry experts - Alex Monk, Portfolio manager at Schroders, Charlie Miller, Climate strategist at Legal & General Investment Management, Dan Grandage, Head of sustainable investing at abrdn and Lorna Logan, Portfolio manager at Stewart Investors.
