CFA Institute has organized a series of virtual meetings to examine the cause and effects of climate change. As we have seen from recent record-breaking heatwaves and the increased incidences of droughts and wildfires, our climate is changing rapidly due to human generated greenhouse gas emissions. The next 10 to 20 years are the most important period for mankind to make substantial and sustainable emissions reductions.
In this webinar, hosted by the Chartered Financial Analyst Society of Philadelphia (CFAP), the speakers explored the effects of Carbon Pricing on our financial markets. Putting a price on carbon, is one of the strongest policy instruments available for combating climate change, protecting our environment, driving investments in clean technologies, and raising revenue but investment professions have seen both positive and negative effects of Carbon Pricing, in the valuation and analysis of the security selection process.
