Oxera will be presenting on The Economics of Climate Change at COP26—the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference—in Glasgow, on one of the world leaders’ days on 2 November 2021. The aim of COP26 is to increase global alignment on climate action. We will be demonstrating to the world’s governments, businesses, organisations and policymakers how economics can focus their efforts in tackling the climate challenge.

In our session, led by Oxera Partners Jostein Kristensen and Sahar Shamsi, we will bring the Economics of Climate Change to life through the film lens as we hear from six guest CEOs and founders of some of the fastest-growing start-ups that are tackling the climate challenge. A short film will show you what investors, economists and GreenTech start-ups are doing, before we begin a lively interactive discussion of the Economics of Climate Change. This visually engaging and wide-ranging session will illustrate how economics can provide the toolkit for harnessing the multi-disciplinary skills that will ultimately make decarbonisation possible.

Our session will provide deep insights, taking you from the use of worldwide geo-mapping of climate risk exposure to land and buildings, to the harnessing of the power of the oceans for achieving decarbonisation. We will discuss data driving carbon offset quality and ratings, supporting investors in the space now and in the future. We will look at the economics issues resulting from new innovative local low-carbon freight delivery systems, and at batteries that do not need recharging for decades. We will see how economics is a study of positive trade-offs that is key to bringing vital solutions and technologies to market.

Join several of tomorrow’s great leaders and investors to navigate the Economics of Climate Change. Alongside the Partners from Oxera, you will meet:
