UVA Darden Series: Carbon Transition Risk
December 10, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
In partnership with FMA International, the Mayo Center for Asset Management at the UVA Darden School of Business invites you to join us for an upcoming session of our Virtual Seminar Series.
We’ll hear from Marcin Kacperczyk from Imperial College London Business School and Patrick Bolton from Columbia University on their joint research examining how firms and investors are addressing the challenge of climate change. The global drive towards a net zero economy exposes companies to carbon-transition risk, and our speakers will present their findings on how investors around the world are pricing these risks. Additionally, they will discuss the progress corporations have made disclosing carbon emissions, setting targets, and whether or not they have effectively reduced the emission intensity of their activities. Marcin and Patrick’s presentation will be followed by a discussion moderated by Pedro Matos from UVA’s Darden School of Business. The Zoom link will be distributed to all registrants prior to the session.
