• Carbon pricing; how much will it impact other energies? What will the market look like in 5 years’ time for such products? How can voluntary or unregulated carbon markets survive or grow?
• A look at sustainable finance: How will that play on your ability to invest and get financed? What should you be looking at from a legal and regulatory point of view?
• ESG considerations in the mitigation of investment risk and technology use
• Market structural effects to pick up on environmental exposure of risky commodities
