  3. Transition Plans in Action

    Investors are increasingly realising the importance of investing in hard-to-abate sectors, in order to drive the transition in the real economy. This does, however, expose them to different kinds of risk. Will the transition plans of these businesses pan out as expected? How are businesses in the hard-to-abate sectors developing their transformation strategies and what are the key questions for investors to ask when assessing these plans?

    Continued efforts to address climate change have evolved with a more recent focus on nature's plight.
