The race to decarbonise is gathering pace by the day. 

The latest confirmation is the decision by one of the world’s five biggest lenders to stop funding coal-fired power plants. This decision by the Bank of China, a top global investor in coal-fired power, confirms the trend. 

Our panel will analyse the new opportunities in a decarbonising world and shed light on new technologies and opportunities for investment.
