    Hedging Risks and Supporting Sustainable Growth Through Markets

    4th November 2020 

    Recent developments at a global level have redefined the concept of risk across industries and geographies. Climate change-induced events, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic we’re still living through, have affected economic activities of all sorts. They also show the need for more global sustainability commitments. Markets are proving to be instrumental in helping economies manage risk and at the same time, supporting sustainability: for instance, freight markets offer effective hedging instruments to protect global trade from unforeseen events, power markets sustain renewable energy development and carbon markets provide solid price signals driving clean investments while clearing houses ensure the stability of the overall economic system. The panel addresses the key role that markets have played – and will play – in promoting a sustainable and green recovery from the pandemic-related economic crisis through better risk management.
