"The coming Energy Transition: making an impact and benefiting from a greener future."
The importance of the energy transition is becoming increasingly clear. The future will be cleaner and greener. CO2 emissions will drop and burning fossil fuels become a thing of the past. Old industries will disappear and new ones take their place.
In order to achieve climate change targets, a transition to a low-carbon world will be needed. This will transform the way we produce, distribute and consume energy. With $120 trillion of investment into renewable energy required by 2050 to meet climate targets, the investment opportunity is huge.
Join the Schroders presentation to hear about how you can have an impact, in making the future a healthier place for our children, and in reaping the rewards for fostering this change.
