DECARBONISING CAMBRIDGE: INVESTMENTS, THE ESTATE, AND LAND USE

Saturday 19 October: 1:00pm - 2:00pm

Alison Richard Building, Room SG1, Sidgwick Site, 7 West Road, CB3 9DP

This talk will examine the changes needed in the financial system to fund the rapid decarbonisation of the global economy; it will begin with a crash course on how the financial system works, and critique some of the most prevalent approaches to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing. Rapid decarbonisation will require changes in all geographies and across all asset classes, and therefore this talk will encompass land use (agriculture, afforestation, wetlands restoration, etc.), energy efficiency retrofits, and more.
Dr Ellen Quigley is the new Advisor to the Chief Financial Officer (Responsible Investment) at the University of Cambridge, and she will thus bring into the conversation Cambridge's own approach to these issues.
