Questions

  1. What are the risks and opportunities of climate change to extractive and primary industries?
  2. How are extractives industries changing their business models to be more low-carbon and circular?

Insights

  • Investment in carbon capture and storage & renewables are key
  • We need a price on carbon and the markets will respond accordingly
  • There are opportunities for reputational gain, not only risks
  • We can meet the global energy demand, but not easily
  • Consumer boycotts can be a very effective catalyst for change
