The challenge of zero-carbon transition for finance - Which trajectories, targets, and metrics for a sustainable transition?Wednesday, October 28thConference
The challenge of zero-carbon transition for finance - Which trajectories, targets, and metrics for a sustainable transition?
Panel 1 - Alignment Strategy and Carbon Neutrality
The application of the Paris Agreements and the European commitment to carbon neutrality calls for a determined, progressive, and coherent response from all economic and financial players. There are today a wide variety of methodologies available to assess the extent to which the choices of a non-financial company or investment fund are in line with these major climate objectives - carbon footprints, technical indicators, temperature indicators, holistic rating methods such as ACT. Although they are not yet mature, they are already mobilized, not only in extra-financial communication but also to influence climate strategies through "dialogues" between stakeholders. How can we promote the evolution of these "alignment metrics" into reliable policy instruments able to guide corporate strategies and financial flows effectively and efficiently?

Confirmed speakers: Thierry Philipponnat (Finance Watch), Romain Poivet (Ademe), Frédéric Samama (CPR AM)
Panel 2 - Risk analysis (physical and transitional), scenarios and impact measures
The goal of massive redirection of investment flows towards ecological transition requires a sound and proven analysis of the risks and opportunities associated with climate change. The financial community has thus become aware of the need to move beyond the traditional asset valuation approach and is seeking to integrate new tools such as climate scenario analyses, which are better able to take into account the high long-term uncertainties inherent in the climate factor. How is the climate factor currently integrated into the financial analysis and investment policies of companies and portfolio managers? What adaptations still need to be made?
