EVORA Global is pleased to be part of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow to help drive climate action and change
Why it matters
The COP26 summit will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The built environment is responsible for around 40% of global greenhouse gas emissions and if left unchecked they are set to double by 2050.
Without significant actions from our industry there is little hope of meeting the Paris Agreement and limiting global temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.
Sustainability has rapidly risen up the public, investor and political agenda – and scrutiny on corporate action has never been higher.
What we are doing
‘Real Estate Investment and Finance: Climate Risk and Opportunities’
Thursday 11th November, 8:30am – 11:00am
Four Winds Pavilion, Glasgow
COP26 is an opportunity for the UN’s global community to respond to the urgent warning that we are facing a “code red for humanity”.
Real estate is one of the sectors most exposed to climate change and on Thursday 11th November 2021, the COP26 Presidency Programme will address ‘Cities, Regions & the Built Environment’. On that morning, EVORA Global and FGH will host a panel to discuss the opportunities and risks of integrating climate change into real estate investment and financial decisions.
The event will be opened by Paul Sutcliffe and Chris Bennett, Executive Directors and Co-Founders of EVORA. They will be joined by experts on debt, investment and climate change, including Emilie Mazzacurati, Global Head of Climate Solutions at Moody’s, Eimear Palmer, Head of Responsible Investing, ICG and Peter Epping, Global Head of ESG at Hines.
In addition to the overarching themes, the COP26 programme has specific thematic days covering a range of sub-topics.
