Pandemic Webinar Series

Climate change and COVID-19, what happens when two crises collide?

The spread of COVID-19 has presented a large array of challenges to the global economy and brought to light questions that may previously have been lying dormant. In these unprecedented times ISS ESG is working to bring support to investors by providing data and insight that can help with navigating the current climate. It is with this in mind that our team of experts have worked on the production of a series of webinars aimed to address the topic of pandemics and share knowledge relevant to responsible investors.

The Climate change and COVID-19, what happens when two crises collide? webinar is the second iteration of the ISS ESG Pandemic Webinar Series. This session will focus on the relation between climate and pandemic challenges within the financial context and explore the influence COVID-19 may have on the climate goals and corporate social behavior. Among the discussion points:

  •  How is the climate challenge structurally similar to the COVID-19 crisis and what does that mean for financial performance?
  • Will COVID-19 help us meet the climate targets and what role do fiscal stimulus packages play?
  • How will the COVID-19 crisis influence our thinking on corporate social behavior and a just climate transition?
