As the world tries to hit net-zero goals by 2030, many financiers are now divesting from coal-related projects in order to safeguard their reputation and avoid having stranded assets in their portfolios.

  • The reputational and health risks facing investors in coal projects
  • The economic case for moving away from coal and towards renewable energy
  • Why countries in Asia are vulnerable to the effects of climate change and how coal investments undermine resiliency
