WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

Will the economic fallout from COVID-19 slow the world’s transition to clean energy, or will we
see an increased focus on ESG as the link between pollution and human health becomes apparent?

Ashim Paun, Global Co-Head of ESG for HSBC Research, argues that once the recovery is underway,
the attention will pivot back towards climate change as the truly systemic threat facing economies
and societies around the world. Using HSBC’s Fragile Planet framework, Ashim analyzes global
climate risks and evaluates how market perception of ESG is shifting as a result of the pandemic.

Watch this replay to learn about:

  • Which countries face a steeper pathway in transitioning from fossil fuels and which
    industries will profit as the world decarbonises

  • How the physical impacts of global warming will play out unevenly and which economies
    and sectors are best equipped to respond to climate risks

  • Why investors are embracing corporations that are committing to ESG during the pandemic
