This infographic shows that it will be governments and the markets – carbon and capital markets – that will drive the transition to a low-carbon economy across the commodity sector’s value chain, from mining to final consumers.
Governments can make climate-change commitments, which need to be backed up by policies such as carbon pricing, financial incentives, and regulation to drive the change. Governments will also need to collaborate closely, with richer countries supporting developing and emerging economies address the climate challenge.
Markets will also play an important role, with carbon markets helping the transition by facilitating the trade of carbon emissions across borders, while the financial markets increasingly differentiate between low and high emitters. Focusing on their risk-adjusted returns, banks, insurers, institutional investors and other participants in the capital markets will increasingly adjust their loan conditions and investment decisions.
