Join us at the 2019 World Energy Capital Assembly

We are pleased to be taking part in the World Energy Capital Assembly event, an anchor event on the industry calendar in London, which brings the oil & gas and finance & investment worlds together.

  • 2 – 3 December 2019
  • London, United Kingdom

Richard Hewston, Principal Consultant, Environment and Climate Change, will be delivering a keynote speech at 1.45 pm on day one of the event, discussing “Hedging climate risk - how the TCFD recommendations can help prepare industry and investors for the Inevitable Policy Response.”

Within the wider context of the energy transition, the TCFD recommendations represent a framework for investors and corporates to engage on climate risk. But is there currently a mismatch in expectations from both sides and can this be resolved in time?

What Richard will cover in his presentation:

  • Where are we on the energy transition journey, what's the Inevitable Policy Response and what are the potential implications for oil and gas companies and their investors?
  • Against this backdrop, using Verisk Maplecroft's Corporate Exposure Tool, we will explore where climate risk is concentrated and the latest trends?
  • What are the TCFD recommendations, how is the industry responding and where are the gaps? How companies and investors can remedy those disclosure pain points and achieve a more transparent view of risk.
