Panel Discussion

Sustainable finance: What role do carbon markets play in tackling climate change?

< return to all events

Speaker(s):
Julia Elmgrem, Gazprom Marketing & Trading Ltd.
Louis Redshaw, Redshaw Advisors
Rachel Ward, The Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change

This is the first in a series of events on sustainable finance organised with the CSFI. It will focus on attempts to control the biggest contributor to the "greenhouse gas" effect - carbon dioxide.

Trading in permits to emit CO2 started following the Kyoto Protocol in 1997. In the early years, the price - each carbon "credit" allows one tonne on CO2 to be emitted - struggled because too many credits were available. But between 2013 and July this year the price rose from about €5 to €30. In September IHS Markit, the data provider, created a global carbon index.

Now the carbon markets can be seen not only as an incentive for companies to reduce emissions but also as a bellwether of increasing investor interest in climate change. This comes against a background of tightening regulation as policy-makers set their sights on carbon neutrality.

To help us understand both the carbon markets and the climate change issue they are designed to address, we have brought together a distinguished panel, including:

  • Louis Redshaw, CEO and Founder of Redshaw Advisors, which he set up in 2014 after a decade running Barclays' environmental markets division - the world's largest carbon business by traded volume. He is a former board member of the International Emissions Trading Association, the Climate Markets and Investment Association and Tricorona.

  • Rachel Ward, Head of Policy at the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change, engaging with decision-makers in Brussels and globally. Previously she was a UK civil servant, working on climate, transport, energy and environmental policy-making.

  • Julia Elmgren, a Carbon Trader at Gazprom, where she has worked for more than 11 years in roles that include business development and portfolio valuation. She is also an expert on UK power assets and in managing clean energy projects.
