Transitioning to a low-carbon economy
Climate change is one of the biggest global challenges facing society. Addressing this will be a huge undertaking for pension schemes. However, it will also create a wealth of opportunities. In this session, Sam will look at the current climate issues facing pension schemes, and what we are doing to help them transition to a low-carbon economy.
Vice President & Portfolio Manager
From the margins to the mainstream, ESG factors have become an essential component in modern investment management. Yet the very popularity of common ESG approaches ensure their reduced efficacy in the next 20 years, whether for alpha generation or impact. Today’s ESG risk management emphasis will likely evolve into a focus on the purpose of the corporation itself as investors recognize the need for more proactive approaches and the transformative opportunities of key sustainability challenges. The Covid‐19 crisis has provided a challenge for investors to accept a broader societal role than solely generating income for retirement.
