LSE Leads: Dr Pauline Barrieu and Dr Umut Cetin

Post-Doctoral Research Officer: Dr Max Fehr

Mitigation and adaptation activities will bring about a plethora of new financial products, introducing new risks and opportunities into the financial sectors.

This research package explores the impacts of alternative approaches to carbon finance and emission trading for different industries, informing the design of trading schemes and new financial service products.

The second phase of the package has investigated better balance investment between mitigation and adaptation, survivability and sustainability from the perspective of market participants.
