Webinar: Sustainable finance - non-financial disclosure for the oil and gas sector and EU taxonomy in practice (Part two)

Online 16 July 2020 14:00 - 15:00

Changes to the energy system in line with the Paris Agreement, the drive toward a net-zero emissions future by 2050 and the increasing demand for energy, particularly in developing countries, will require massive shifts in investment flows, transforming all sectors of the global economy.
 
To support the development of longer-term, more resilient financial models, an increasing number of governmental and inter-governmental initiatives are being launched which encourage financial institutions to include sustainability issues in their governance and risk management functions.

Part two of the IPIECA-IOGP sustainable finance webinar series will update participants on the recently adopted EU Taxonomy Regulation, which covers non-financial disclosures for large businesses, including oil and gas companies, and provides a clear set of rules and criteria against which businesses must report publicly on the sustainable nature of their investments.

Oil and gas companies will need to adapt their corporate and environmental, social and governance reporting to meet the requirement of the regulation. The speakers will present their insights and understanding to provide the participants with tangible learnings on how to comply with the regulation effectively and how it might inspire other jurisdictions to adopt similar measures.
 
The webinar will be moderated by IPIECA Executive Committee Member Iñigo Palacio Prada, Sustainability Strategy and Coordination, Repsol.

Panellists:

  • Rachel Bonfante, Co-Chair of IOGP Corporate Governance, Transparency and Reporting Sub-Committee
  • Lee Clements, Head of Multi-Asset Sustainable Investment Research, FTSE Russell
  • Helena Viñes Fiestas, Global Head of Stewardship and Policy, BNP Paribas Asset Management
