Event Details:

The Sustainable Finance and Investment Seminar (CEE 157/257), led by Soh Young In, is a 1-unit course which aims to equip the Stanford community with the knowledge and networks required to undertake significant future work on sustainable finance and investment. The course is open to students, faculty, and staff in the Stanford community. CEE 157/257 meets every Friday from 8:30 - 9:20 am PST (with noted exceptions) during fall quarter (Remote: Synchronous).

Up next:

On November 18, Kristina Wyatt, Deputy GC and SVP Global Regulatory Climate Disclosure at Persefoni, will talk about how carbon accounting underpins emerging climate disclosure requirements around the world. The availability and reliability of carbon data is central to companies’ evaluation of their climate-related risks and opportunities and to investors evaluation of the role of climate change in their investment decisions. Carbon accounting has historically been plagued by complexity and large volumes of data that overwhelm traditional spreadsheets. Recently developed digital technologies hold promise for easing reporting, making data more useful and reliable, and ultimately leading to network effects that will rapidly scale the availability of carbon data throughout the economy.
