    How Governments & Businesses Align on Net Zero

    Panel Finance & Investment/Trading & Risk Management/ESG
    Countries representing 90% of both global GDP and emissions have now committed to net-zero emissions, but the IPCC, IHS Markit, and others project that emissions will increase by 2030. International oil and gas companies were largely excluded from the COP 26 negotiations. Fuel and power generation shortages have caused oil and gas price increases that have alarmed both politicians and the public. How can governments and businesses align to address both the energy transformation of the future and the energy security needs of today? What role can non-governmental organizations (NGOs) play in helping to reshape consumer demand and governmental and industry responses to meet demand?
