Description

Post Paris 2015, an increasing number of investors are aiming to build GHG emissions based investment strategies but they still face a simple, though significant challenge: the vast majority of companies simply do not report 100% of their GHG emissions. Only 53 firms worldwide explicitly disclose and state that the % covered for emissions disclosure is 100%.

Imagine firms would only report a part of their costs to investors, unthinkable? Well, not in terms of GHG emissions and the risks and costs associated with these. LVHM, for example, reports 85% whereas Accor reports just 48%. In short: we need innovations that incentive firms to stop partial GHG reporting and start complete GHG reporting.

Moderated by Donald Macdonald, Chairman of the International Investor Group of Climate Change (IIGCC), this webinar will see Pelle Pedersen, Responsible Investment Analyst at Danish pension fund PKA, argue why investors need more innovation. Pelle will be followed by Hideki Suzuki, Senior Analyst of Bloomberg, who provides an outline of the problem of partial GHG reporting. The Technical Manager of Data for CDP, Ian van der Vlugt will explain what CDP does to tackle this problem before Andreas Hoepner concludes the presentations outlining how science can help to overcome this challenge.
