The climate case for investing in EMD
Climate standards and policies in emerging markets are, on a whole, lagging many developed markets. However, this is not a reason not to invest. Emerging markets are crucial to the low carbon transition, and they are also where many of the biggest climate opportunities can be found. For investors looking to make a climate impact, emerging markets are not to be ignored.

“Decarbonising portfolios; a sovereigns approach”?
Why focus on government bonds?
Governments set the rules and regulations that companies and individuals follow
Without their support and investment, the world will not be able to tackle its most pressing problems – climate change in particular.
How might fixed income investors construct government bond portfolios in a way that has biggest possible impact in the fight against climate change?
Focus to be most impactful
climate-focused sovereign debt portfolio shouldn’t focus exclusively on green bonds.
