COP27 – what happened?

Prior to the COP27 climate negotiations in Egypt, we set out our expectations on what the meeting might achieve. As we anticipated, there was intense focus in Sharm El-Sheikh on the impact of the changing climate, after another year of weather extremes. As also expected, the backdrop of rising costs and energy security provided the political headwinds to spur some progress.

 

Here we set out our views on what COP27 achieved, what may come next, and what opportunities and challenges this presents to investors.

Dealing with the price of physical climate impacts: advances made, but much more to do.
Little progress on closing the 1.5C emissions gap
Further pressure for non-state actors to take a lead
Carbon markets: some progress, but concerns raised about “greenwashing” loopholes
Looking ahead: what are the prospects for COP28 in Dubai?
