Green is the New Grey: Navigating the Nuances of the Low Carbon Transition

Thu, February 7, 2019



Since the launch of the Montreal Pledge and Portfolio Decarbonization Pledge in 2014, more and more institutional investors are looking beyond their carbon footprint and developing sophisticated approaches to understanding how various climate scenarios can impact their risk and return profiles. In this session, you will hear from an active manager using ESG data and an asset owner using a low carbon benchmark to limit exposure to climate risk, while also identifying opportunities in the transition to the low carbon economy. Carbon Tracker will set the stage by defining the financial impact of climate risk and MSCI will present an innovative new Low Carbon Transition score launched to help investors identify the climate risks in their portfolios.
