ESG: What the buy-side should
look out for in 2021

After an unprecedented year marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are facing unchartered territory in 2021. The series of 2020 events will help shape our future - not only because of the pandemic’s hopefully successful vaccine - but also the change of government in the United States, moving from President Donald Trump to newly elected Joe Biden. 

This change in administration will mean a shift in many regulations including ESG policies. Will we witness a difference in the climate change reforms previously taken by the Trump administration? To what extent will these changes affect the Paris agreement? Will we see a change of focus in power production? Will this pave the way for greener technology?

During the session, our expert speakers will discuss all these questions within the following topics below: 
  • Regulatory Impact: EU action plan on sustainable finance and the possible climate change policy transformation under the new US Administration.
  • The Green Future – is hydrogen the “new” sustainable energy source?
  • Green Transition Financing – Green instruments and the rise of transition bonds.
