Extending the Ladder – a Leaders and Laggards Scenario

with Beatrice Tanjangco and Felicity Hannon | Online | July 18, 2024

The Global Climate Service (GCS) quantifies the macroeconomic impacts of six climate scenarios against our Oxford Economics baseline. These scenarios help businesses understand the trade-offs and implications of climate mitigation. In this webinar, we will look at our new GCS scenario and examine the role of innovation in the green transition. This quarter, our new scenario “Leaders and Laggards” explores the potential impacts of a less ambitious scenario where countries with the capacity to lead in the transition do so anyway, reaping benefits from innovation and technological advancement. Countries that lack the resources and political support are slower to transition but benefit from spill overs. Even so, less ambition leads to more warming, and the world does not reach net zero.

Global Climate Service – From Bright to Bleak: Taking Stock of Climate Futures

with Beatrice Tanjangco, Toby Whittington and Manuela Kiehl | Online | October 17, 2023

Oxford Economics produces climate scenarios updated quarterly, using our world class models to quantify physical and transitional risks at a macroeconomic and sectoral level. Our models are hybrid structural models with transparent, verifiable channels and clear, detailed reporting on assumptions and methodology. This quarter we have expanded our coverage to highlight the full spectrum of the physical and transition risks associated with climate change. Scenarios at the tail end of distribution such as Energy Disorder focusses on energy security and Climate Catastrophe focuses on what happens if governments fail to meet policy pledges – both mean the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere intensifies and result in more severe physical damages that accelerate over time. These scenarios are critical for risk assessment. At the other end of the spectrum, there are multiple paths to keep temperatures in check, and these can be transformative or disruptive. In this webinar, we will present our findings across a range of net zero scenarios and the more extreme physical risk scenarios. We will also discuss new model developments and updates to our fossil fuel demand forecasting methodology.

Global Climate Service: Divergent policies & the cost of uncoordinated action

with David Winter, Sean Metcalfe and Felicity Hannon | Online | April 20, 2023

This quarter our new scenario – Divergent Net Zero – demonstrates the cost of uncoordinated policy action. Divergence in mitigation policy across sectors results in a higher burden on consumers relative to industry. In this webinar we present detailed results at the macro and industry level, leveraging our new Industry Climate Service, which quantifies the impacts of climate scenarios on economic activity and energy consumption at the industry level.

Webinar
The sectoral implications of climate change

with Abby Samp and Sean Metcalfe | Online | March 2, 2023

Which sectors will gain and which will lose out in a net zero transition scenario? How will the phasing out of fossil fuels and the expansion of renewable electricity impact manufacturing supply chains? What will the composition of energy usage within the transport sector look like in 2050? Our new Climate Industry Service, which assesses the sectoral impacts of five climate scenarios against a stated policies baseline, addresses these pertinent questions pertaining to the energy transition. In this Webinar, we will discuss the major sector-level insights that emerge from the latest set of scenarios.
