There is so much money being thrown into the energy transition so that companies and governments can reach their NetZero goals. However, there have always been challenges in determining whether the money being spent is being allocated in the most effective and cost-efficient way. On 24 February, at 11 am ET, Energy Web and Alliance for Innovative Regulation (AIR) will host an event exploring how to make this transition through an online virtual event.
Green finance represents a new frontier for financial companies and their regulators. As demand rises for information about the industry’s performance on climate and other environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, regulators will be challenged to identify and mitigate emerging risks.
The Alliance for Innovative Regulation (AIR) and Energy Web invite you to hear about how regulators are viewing ESG disclosures and other climate change challenges ahead. We will also explore how both regulators and financial companies can address these concerns.
