    Industries in Transition: Capturing the carbon opportunity

    Industries in Transition: Capturing the carbon opportunity

    America has re-joined the Paris Agreement on limiting global warming to one and a half degrees Celsius by 2030. Meanwhile, China, the world's biggest consumer of coal has committed to carbon neutrality by 2060. Many countries and corporations are on similar pathways, but even if everyone is headed in the same direction, are they on the fastest and most effective track?


    One of the ways to reduce carbon emissions is through carbon markets, by setting a price on emissions and enabling the trading of emission units. But how do carbon markets actually work? And are they the answer to the global drive to net zero?  


    In this podcast, Chris Leeds, Executive Director, Commodity Origination at Standard Chartered, explains the economics of carbon markets and discusses its impact in emerging markets and beyond.

    Industries in Transition: A Conversation with Bill Winters: Sustainability and Resilience in the Face of Disruption

    Turbulent. Chaotic. Disruptive. There are many ways that we’ll remember 2020, but according to Bill Winters, Group Chief Executive of Standard Chartered, one word captures it best: resilient. Few escaped the socioeconomic turmoil of Covid-19. While some were harder hit, most had to pivot to survive. Against this backdrop, businesses around the world had to re-examine their core values and decide what matters most. For Standard Chartered, a relentless focus on sustainability topped the list.


    In this podcast, Bill Winters discusses the lessons learnt in 2020 and Standard Chartered’s ambitions in the sustainable finance space. Through the challenges and opportunities, he explores what the future holds and how the bank has greater impetus than ever to make good on its commitment to close the sustainability gap in emerging markets and beyond.
