More than 10,000 scientists have issued a stark warning of a global climate emergency, and the consequences of this are significantly negative, potentially catastrophic.
In any crisis the danger may present an opportunity to offer a solution and improve on the situation. Energy transition will require monumental effort from everyone and it also offers an opportunity for a greener future. Join the Salon to hear and discuss the issue at hand.
We will be joined by Nick Stansbury, Head of Commodity Research at LGIM, who has been conducting long term research project to analyze energy transition and to illuminate the likely implications.
