What should be an appropriate carbon price in the wake of COP26
Arguably, carbon prices are currently too low and we should be pricing carbon much more aggressively. In this webinar, James Nixon will review the existing estimates and methodologies with a view to gauging how high carbon prices might need to go in order to limit global warming in line with the Paris agreement. He will also consider some of the implications and outcomes of the recent COP26 in Glasgow.

- APAC – Tuesday 23rd November | 10:00 HKT

Key themes for 2024 – another year of price weakness
Energy and metal markets have experienced a sharp reversal in prices this year, as we expected, diminishing the Super cycle thesis of our competitors. In this webinar, we examine the key themes affecting commodity markets in 2024 as the energy transition gathers pace and discuss our leading calls for prices in the year ahead. Overall, we expect another year of price weakness as we forecast the global economy to grow at its slowest pace since the global financial crisis, excluding the pandemic. We also anticipate supply to improve across commodity markets next year, which will further weigh on prices.Find Out More
