European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen outlined the EU’s new green deal in her State of the Union address on Wednesday 16 September. Her speech highlighted the vital importance Europe is placing on being a climate neutral economy by 2050 and proposed much tougher greenhouse gas emission targets.

In this audiocast, Kristina Church, Senior Investment Strategist for Sustainability, discusses the potential implications of the EU’s ambitious climate stance and considers the investment opportunities this may present. Key topics include:

  • The likely increase in focus on the carbon price, tightening of the emissions trading system and a potential carbon border tax could have significant implications for companies with global supply chains 
  • The growing importance of a circular economy in achieving sustainability and how market forces, investors, consumers and regulators are driving change
  • The growing focus on supply chain resilience in light of the COVID-19 pandemic
  • The need to identify whether companies are preparing themselves for a future that is increasingly carbon-constrained and carbon-damaged.
