Financial institutions are increasingly required to provide information about the steps they are taking to protect themselves – and their stakeholders – from investments exposed to systemic carbon and climate change risks.

This webinar provides practical insights into how investors can identify and manage risks concealed in their portfolios – and why it is important to provide transparency to stakeholders in a way that is data driven and credible.


Speakers include Julie Fox Gorte, Ph.D, SVP Sustainable Investing, Pax World Investments, who describes the work they have done to assess and manage their investment exposure – including the challenges and pitfalls they have overcome. Also presenting is Sonal Mahida, US Network Manager at the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), who outlines how asset owners can include responsible investment in manager selection, appointment and monitoring.  And finally, Trucost provides insights into how financial institutions are integrating carbon and natural capital risk management into investment decision making to create greater value in financial and natural capital terms.

The webinar closes with an interactive Q&A where the experts are quizzed on various aspect of understanding, managing and reporting financed emissions.
