A webinar presented by the IBA Energy, Environment, Natural Resources and Infrastructure Law Section

This webinar will bring together key participants at the COP26 climate change summit to discuss successes, disappointments and next steps for countries to take action to address the goals of the Paris Agreement, achieve greenhouse gas reduction targets and build resiliency for the planet. The focus will be on aspects of the climate change negotiations that have an impact on lawyers and legal practices, including revised and updated commitments to address emissions, investments and finance policies surrounding the energy transition and climate adaptation, international policy focused on the role of industrialised nations and emerging markets to achieve climate change solutions, and the role of corporations and corporate social responsibility to contribute to success in these goals. The speakers will address next steps for domestic and international action on climate, sustainable finance and sector-specific approaches. The panel will also share forecasts for the next year of developments leading up to COP27 in Africa.
