Finding solutions to the environmental emergency: where politics meets economics

with James Lambert, Jake Kuyer and Caroline Franklin | Online | December 13, 2022

The health of the planet has been at the top of the global political and business agenda in recent weeks with COP27 last month and the parallel COP15 on biodiversity. In the past year, extreme weather events including, hurricanes and wildfires have had a devastating impact on the lives of millions of people around the world. Governments, companies, and investors are aware of the risks of global warming but COP-27 climate summit served as a reminder of how complex it is for stakeholders to agree on a solution, and on their role within it.

Climate change: The big hairy audacious problem… with the big hairy questions

with Felicity Hannon, Jake Kuyer, Bethan Jewsbury, Richard Holt and Adrian Cooper | Online | October 26, 2022

Climate change is here. And (almost) everyone accepts that urgent and transformational action is necessary by policymakers and organisations to understand and mitigate its impact. But it’s a larger, broader and more complex challenge than any other we’ve faced in modern times, and many organisations are struggling to decide where to start, let alone what to do. There are definitely more questions than answers. We have brought together experts from across Oxford Economics to discuss some of the questions they have been asked recently.

A perspective on Just Energy Transitions in Africa

with Deon Fourie | Online | September 6, 2022

One of the key expected outcomes from the upcoming COP27 summit is for earnest action to be taken by global climate leaders to close the enormous funding gap that is restraining the ability of African countries to transition to low-carbon economies. A central feature of this transition involves the sustained displacement of fossil fuels by renewable energy and complementary technologies. This transformation process, however, must be carefully managed in such a way that the net social and economic benefits outweigh the costs. In this webinar, we offer a perspective on what the structural changes to more environmentally sustainable energy systems may mean for a number of African countries. We also offer insights into energy transitions within the distinct developmental circumstances and energy structures of these countries, along with highlighting the likely implications for energy investment and the factors to be considered in the climate deliberations at COP27 in Egypt.

Investment and innovation opportunities from a net zero energy transition

with Felicity Hannon | Online | January 18, 2022

Achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050 will require a radical transformation of the whole economy. But it also creates a unique opportunity to boost private investment and innovation. In this webinar Felicity will present Oxford Economics' new Net Zero Transformation scenario which explores some of the potential upside risks from the transition to net zero emissions by 2050. We assume that prevailing market inefficiencies are eliminated, and private investors grow confident that they can generate profits on green investment. This demand stimulus boosts long run productivity through improved resource allocation, reduced environmental damages and greater innovation.
