Please join us for ESGX Live to discuss Climate Investing Innovations with expert co-authors of 3 chapters of “The Global Handbook Of Impact Investing: Solving Global Problems Via Smarter Capital Markets Towards A More Sustainable Society” (Wiley 2021).

Our economy remains dependent on carbon-intensive production and consumption. Extractive industries (oil, gas, coal, pipelines, automakers) need to go “net zero” and “pure zero” or be left behind.

More sustainable, regenerative portfolios are necessary for survival of our planet and people. How can we advance and support greener portfolios — and how to get there faster?

In this special episode of ESGX Live, we will discuss the following questions:

  • What investment types and tools advance climate action?
  • How to reduce risk in your portfolio – and spur positive outcomes?
  • What structures can increase transparency and accountability?

Moderated by Elsa de Morais Sarmento and Paul Herman, co-editors of the book, and Nigel Lake of Pottinger, panel

  • Pauline Deschryver, climate researcher and investment officer
  • Jo Puri, Director, International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD)
  • Chander Balakumar, Portfolio Risk Mgmt., Dynamo Software

“What is the Role of
Impact Verification
in Impact Investing?”

Thursday, May 6th: 
9am PT / 10am MT / 11am CT / 12pm ET / 17h UK / 18h Europe

Most impact investors share a mutual commitment to make a positive impact alongside generating a financial return.

Investors’ lack of transparency on their impact performance is a key issue facing the market, according to The State Of Impact Measurements & Management Practices.

The Operating Principles for Impact Management are a framework for investors to design and implement their impact management systems.

  • How to ensure the impact considerations integrate throughout the investment life cycle?
  • What are the best practices for verifying the outcomes by engaging with stakeholders?
  • What role does impact verification play in impact investing?

The conversation will be ignited by Ana Pimenta, Elsa De Morais Sarmento, and HIP’s Paul Herman, three of the 50 co-authors of the Global Handbook of Impact Investing, containing 6 chapters on impact measurement and management (Wiley 2021).
