Is green in the pipeline? Sensing gas’ potential contribution to climate change mitigation

Natixis Research highlights the role of natural gas and related assets as an indispensable link in the journey towards carbon neutrality.

Asia: first in first out?

Last week, Alicia Garcia Herrero spoke at the 2020 IIF Annual Membership Meeting.

Held as a fully virtual event this year, with over over 1,500+ senior financial executives, economists, and policymakers from around the globe joining, the theme was Financing a Sustainable Economy: Crisis recovery and drivers of future growth.

Alicia took part in the session: “Asia: first in first out?”, speaking alongside Gene Ma, Head of China Research, IIF; Prakash Kannan, Managing Director & Chief Economist, Head Total Portfolio Management, GIC, and; Robert Subbaraman, Managing Director, Head of Global Macro Research and Co-Head of GM Research, Nomura, together they addressed how East Asian countries managed to outperform other regions this year amid the pandemic.

Topics covered during the session included: What sectors are behind the recovery? Can consumption, infrastructure and real estate save the region? Can Asia survive without the global recovery in trade? What are the contingent plans for the possible second wave? How will Asia deal with the rising leverage? What else should Asia fiscal and monetary authorities do?


DESALINATION: Balancing the Socioeconomic Benefits and Environmental Costs

This research report explores the numerous benefits and costs of desalination as a means of producing potable water. Desalination refers to the process of removing salts and other impurities from water. There can be no human development without water, but can water scarce countries develop sustainably thanks to desalination? The answer to this question requires an understanding of how desalination works and under which circumstances its benefits can be maximized and its drawbacks attenuated.

Is green in the pipeline? Sensing gas’ potential contribution to climate change mitigation

Tuesday November 3, 2020 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. (CET time)

The main author Ivan Pavlovic of the study is pleased to invite you to talk about what role for natural gas in the transition towards a low-carbon economy?

The purpose of this document is two fold:

(1) By providing an in-depth analysis of the underlying value chain, the current uses and environmental externalities of natural gas, it aims to clarify the role this molecule can play to support the transition toward a zero-carbon economy

(2) It also aims to determine the future role of existing natural gas infrastructures in such a zero-carbon economy, particularly in light of the current emergence of low-carbon gases such as biomethane and green hydrogen.
