TOPIC: Meeting the Climate Challenge: Credit Risks to Munis

Date: Friday, November 12, 2021

Time: 12:00 - 1:00 pm

Location: Zoom Webinar

Details:

Climate change is challenging analysts by posing structural changes to credit risk. Moreover, climate provisions in Federal legislative efforts have been weakened, making the US’s Paris accord promises more challenging. With that backdrop, what climate leadership should we expect from the states to step up to achieve the needed 50% emission cuts by 2030? What credit implications would decarbonization mean for state and local governments and public power? What can be expected in the clean energy transition? Where are the economic opportunities? Given the materiality of climate change risks, what are the credit metrics and disclosures necessary to assess such risks? These and other issues will be addressed by this highly accomplished and esteemed panel.
