Description

As the effects of climate change become more visible and evidence mounts about the magnitude of its impact, a growing number of institutional investors are incorporating climate change risk into their portfolios. Major investors are committing to decarbonizing their portfolios in order to lower their carbon footprint, improving climate change governance and increasing climate-related financial disclosures.

During this timely breakfast briefing, institutional investors, investment consultants, family offices, asset managers and climate experts will provide insight into how leading investors are assessing climate-related risks, increasing shareholder engagement and capitalizing on opportunities in the transition to a more sustainable economy.

Our key discussion topics include:

  • Identifying financial risk from climate change and recommended approaches for institutional investors.
  • Divestment strategies and shareholder engagement on disclosing climate-related risks.
  • Emerging best practices in portfolio measurement and reporting on climate-related metrics.
