Climate change took center stage in 2021 at the UN COP26 conference. While a list of commitments was compiled throughout the year, perhaps most notable was the immense volume of capital committed to address the world's environmental challenges. Participants from the global financial system have pledged trillions to the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net-Zero, acknowledging their role in accelerating a transition of the global economy. Some of the most recognized corporate leaders have committed their companies and their personal assets to solving the problem. This panel will highlight those leading the charge and discuss what happens next, now that commitments have been made.
