THE RESPONSE FROM THE FINANCIAL SECTOR
The Hutton Series on Climate Change is a series of events taking place across 2020-21 at Adam Smith’s Panmure House, bringing together a diverse cross-section of experts, business leaders, scientists, and concerned citizens in the service of one simple aim:
to identify ten key priorities, innovations & actions to mitigate the climate crisis.
Our keynote speakers for this second session were Keith Skeoch, Chairman of Aberdeen Standard Investments Research Institute, and Kirsty Hamilton, former Director of the Low Carbon Finance Group. Each led a keynote for 5 minutes, before taking questions and participating in a debate panel, led by Professor Heather McGregor (Executive Dean, Edinburgh Business School, Heriot-Watt University). Our speakers were joined by Willie Watt of the Scottish National Investment Bank (SNIB) and Professor John Ludden CBE of Heriot-Watt University to debate and discuss key financial ramifications of climate change.
