In today’s rapidly evolving landscape, boards and management teams hold pivotal roles in addressing the dual challenges posed physical and economic transitions driven by climate change. The banking sector finds itself at the forefront, facing heightened demand for transparency and action on climate-related issues from diverse stakeholders, including government agencies, regulators, investors, customers, employees, and environmental organizations. The recent enactment of two climate disclosure laws in California underscores this new reality, signaling a paradigm shift in how we approach sustainability.

This presentation aims to shed light on not just the challenges, but also the vast opportunities awaiting bankers in financing the transition to a net-zero emissions economy by 2050. We will delve into these CA-specific disclosure laws and present an overview of ten key climate-friendly technologies poised to play pivotal roles in mitigating climate change. Through this exploration, attendees will gain invaluable insights into the scale and scope of the business development opportunities presented by the rapid transition towards a low-carbon future.
