Ayuna Nechaeva – how LSEG supports companies with their disclosures & who is going to finance the transition?

At COP 26 it was estimated that hundreds of trillions will be required to enable the transition to a low carbon economy.

Climate change is a priority for policymakers, issuers, investors, and the whole world. In order to achieve the world’s low-carbon ambition – a whole economic transition to lower carbon is required.

It is important to take carbon-intensive sectors such as mining on a journey to lowering emissions and being able to operate effectively in the climate-smart world.

Public markets provide tools for companies to make the transition. For example, LSEG has a transition bond segment which opens a pathway to financing this decarbonization beyond traditionally green sectors. The tool is available to natural resources, metals, and mining companies to raise capital specifically for those transition targets.
