Webinar on Chilean Electric Utilities: The Sustainability Path

Larrainvial

The Emerging Markets Investors Alliance and LarrainVial invite you to a webinar on Thursday, June 11 at 10am EDT to discuss the sustainable transition of the Chilean electric utilities sector.

We will discuss:

– The meaning of sustainability in global utilities, with a particular focus on decarbonization. We will review the role of different institutions active in setting and monitoring carbon performance (UNEP, TCFD) along with frameworks and metrics for measuring sustainability. For context please access “Electric Utility Alignment with the SDGs & the Paris Climate Agreement” report.

– The state of Chile’s climate strategy as reflected in the recently-updated Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) as part of the Paris Agreement, and related legislation and long term planning. Download the updated Chile’s NDC here.

– Carbon transition strategies of the Chilean generating companies, and the implications for their financial outlook. For context access LarrainVial’s latest report “Chile Utilities sector more than a safe haven”.
