The Low-Carbon Industrial Revolution

April 21, 2011 1811

On Thursday, March 17, 2011, Nicholas Stern gave the next lecture in the LSE Works series. Sponsored by SAGE, LSE Works is a free lecture series showcasing the works of LSE’s Research Centres and offering an opportunity for discourse on the fundamental insights revealed.

Professor Nicholas Stern, Lord Stern of Brentford, is a chairman of both the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment and the ESRC Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy. The Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment aims to generate world-class, policy-relevant research on climate change and the environment for academics, policy-makers, businesses, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), the media, and the general public.

Following Lord Stern’s lecture, Visiting Professor Michael Jacobs and Gerard Lyons gave comments. Professor Jacobs has been a visiting researcher at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment since 2010, while Lyons is Chief Economist and Group Head of Global Research at Standard Chartered Bank.

Attended by 338 people, the lecture focused on an overview of progress towards low-carbon economic growth and managing the risks of climate change. Lord Stern addressed the prospects for an international agreement on climate change, including an assessment of the United Nations negotiations. A review of the event can be found here.
