Merci Pierre pour ce lien ! De quoi s’agit-il exactement ? J’ai du mal à comprendre la nature de l’événement et à quoi correspond la possibilité de s’enregistrer :sweat_smile:

Bonjour Laetitia, je vois cet événement comme un « Climate Change for CEOs ». En ce qui me concerne c´est un public que j´aimerai influencer « dans le bon sens » et ces conférences permettront de voir leur façon de penser pour trouver un discours adéquat.
Ci- dessous le détail de l´invitation"
You are invited to attend the Global Summit of the Climate Governance Initiative. This event is co-organized by the Chapters of the Climate Governance Initiative in collaboration with the World Economic Forum . The IESE Center for Corporate Governance is endorsing it.

On March 23, our faculty member Prof. Mireia Giné will moderate the second session of the summit on « The Role of Capital Markets in Driving the Transition Towards a Carbon Zero Economy ». Panelists will include the Chair of BNP Paribas Jean Lemirerre , the Chair of Société Générale Lorenzo Bini Smaghi , the CEO of The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation Kate Hampton , and the First Vice-President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development Jürgen Rigterink .

The summit will gather world-renowned board members , regulators , experts , scholars and other corporate governance leaders to understand and come up with actions to respond to the risks and opportunities the climate emergency poses to the long-term resilience and business success of companies.

The pressing need to address the climate emergency requires governments and businesses to accelerate the transition to a new economic model, which seeks to limit global average temperature increases to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, consistent with the 2018 recommendations of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Climate change is shaping a new reality, creating risks and opportunities for business in a diverse number of ways. Investors, regulators and other stakeholders are now challenging companies to take responsibility by adopting an integrated, strategic approach to addressing the climate emergency.

Many, if not most, boardrooms are grappling with how to frame the risks and opportunities and embed a viable transition strategy into their business models. Boards of directors play a critical role in ensuring the long-term stewardship of the companies they oversee.
