The panel forms part of the World Climate Summit’s Investment COP, a leading forum for business and investment-driven solutions to climate change and a key side event to the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) taking place in Glasgow from 1st - 12th November 2021.

Dick Weil, CEO of Janus Henderson Investors said: “The conversation around decarbonising portfolios, and the global economy at large, has never been more important. Janus Henderson remains focused on, and committed to, sustainable investing. We are looking forward to hosting this panel of experts at ICOP and aim to move the debate forward, to establish what asset managers can and should be doing, to encourage and enable emerging markets to make a sustainable transition’.
Dr Nina Seega, Research Director at CISL said: “This panel presents a valuable opportunity for us to pool our knowledge across the financial, policy and business worlds and examine the ways in which decarbonisation can, and needs to, be deployed and integrated in emerging markets. I’m looking forward to hearing from my fellow panellists about the innovative approaches they have adopted within their own fields to accelerate their journeys to Net Zero.”
