Getting to Zero: The Struggle to Address Climate Policy Through Multilateralism

The world has placed vast importance on the COP26 meetings in Glasgow for their role in setting a considerably more ambitious and urgent global climate agenda. But the approach both to this event and emissions reduction more broadly remains fragmented with disparate interests spanning across participating governments, institutions, and corporations. With little consensus on how targets should be set and incentivized, and vast inequality in distribution of resources to achieve these targets, there are many loops to close and hurdles to clear before the world can arrive at a truly impressive and obtainable pathway to zero emissions. Kevin Kajiwara, Co-President of Political Risk Advisory, joins Monica Frassoni, Teneo Senior Advisor, former MEP and Co-President of the European Green Party, Sarah Ladislaw, Head of the US program at Rocky Mountain Institute, and Michal Meidan, Director of the China Energy Programme at Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, for a lively discussion that addresses three of the most influential markets in the climate debate. Our guests focus on policy and regulatory implications surrounding global climate change literature and COP26, and assess how deeper commitments and greater scrutiny of companies, investments, and government action can shape the path forward.
