|| The global economic shock caused by COVID-19 will impact the campaign to accelerate climate action for decades. The shock will almost certainly make the public more sensitive to other ‘black swan’ events, with climate change underpinning many of the most threatening, while the crisis demonstrates that governments are willing to take extraordinary interventionist measures to mitigate life threatening crises. Much media focus has been placed on the enormous short-term challenges - and future direction of travel - facing a number of major industrial and service sectors, some of which have high carbon footprints. This interactive webinar will seek to understand how the pandemic is interacting with the need for accelerated action on climate change and greater sustainability in key sectors such as aviation, fossil fuels, and insurance.
