Corporate Carbon Disclosures and the Path to Net Zero - Online Panel Discussion
Even though much progress has been made in corporate reporting of climate-related risks the vast majority of companies still do not disclose anything about their greenhouse gas emissions and those that do, do not report in a consistent way. Mandatory disclosure of important information is the bedrock on which capital markets are founded. Given the urgency of the climate crisis, information about corporate carbon emissions is becoming increasingly important. In the Policy Insight "Corporate Carbon Disclosures and the Path to Net Zero", the authors articulate a proposal for mandating corporate carbon disclosures in a simple, standardized and consistent way.

The Policy Insight is led by Patrick Bolton (Imperial College London, Columbia University and CEPR) and Stefan Reichelstein (University of Mannheim, Stanford University) in collaboration with co-authors Marcin Kacperczyk (Imperial College London), Christian Leuz (University of Chicago, Booth School of Business), Gaizka Ormazabal (IESE Business School and CEPR) and Dirk Schoenmaker (Erasmus University Rotterdam and CEPR).

We are also pleased to announce that Creon Butler (Director, Global Economy and Finance Programme, Chatham House), Christopher O'Donovan (Senior Policy Advisor to Mark Carney, COP26 Private Finance Hub), Lucrezia Reichlin (Professor of Economics, London Business School and CEPR) and Frédéric Samama (Chief Responsible Investment Officer at CPR am, Amundi group) will be joining the panel discussion.

Concluding remarks delivered by Beatrice Weder di Mauro (The Graduate Institute Geneva, INSEAD and CEPR).

The RPN on Sustainable Finance, established in June 2021 for an initial three-year term, is led by Professor Dirk Schoenmaker (Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University, CEPR, and co-author of the textbook Principles of Sustainable Finance, OUP).
