Seven key takeaways from the discussion between Former Bank of England and Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney and Hendrik du Toit, CEO of Ninety One.

The fast view

  • There are two “high-ambition” goals for COP26: for countries to make net-zero pledges, backed by credible plans; to establish the tools and markets so every financial decision can take climate into account.
  • You can’t look backwards for answers to the climate challenge. You have to apply forward-looking judgement, including with respect to your investment portfolio.
  • Expect a big acceleration of public pools of capital towards the transition to net zero.
  • Investors should shift their focus more to supporting companies that are helping the transition to net zero, not just screening out the climate ‘problem’ from their portfolios.
  • Net zero requires a whole-economy transition. This is why efforts to tackle climate change are a major commercial opportunity, not just a societal imperative.
  • We need a new version of globalisation to ensure that the transition happens fairly for developing economies.
  • The pandemic is causing major changes in the supply side of the economy. One of the big judgements for policymakers and investors to make is how permanent those changes are.
