Panel Discussion: Voluntary Carbon Markets in the Road to Net Zero
David Greely sits down with BP’s Sue Helen Nieto, Trafigura’s Hannah Hauman and Anne Casamento of Anglo American to explore the practical reality of how companies are (or are not) using the voluntary carbon markets to help meet their net zero goals. The conversation also examines the opportunities and challenges of both the natural resource and mining industries in decarbonization and making a career transition into carbon services.
Panel Discussion: Using Law, Finance and Technology to Scale Voluntary Carbon Markets
Macquarie’s Leah Wieczorek-Bauer, HFW’s Peter Zaman, Tom Enger of Climate Impact X and Founder of Watr Protocol, Maryam Ayati, sit down with David Greely to discuss the current state of the voluntary carbon market across law, finance, and technology.

The panel closes by highlighting expanding career opportunities in carbon solutions and insights on how to take advantage of them.
A Conversation with HFW: The Energy Transition and the Role of Carbon Pricing and ESG Tools
In a recent panel discussion hosted by former guest and HFW Partner, Peter Zaman, David Greely joins Singapore Exchange’s Herry Cho along with Anthony Hobley of the World Economic Forum, expanding on a theme David has brought to his recent series: Winter is Coming. The panel discusses whether we have the metals, investing tools, and political will required for the widespread electrification powered by low-carbon renewables envisioned in current net-zero plans or do we need to develop a ‘Plan B’ for the energy transition.
