The 350.Org campaign has brought into sharp focus the need for investors to consider the role of fossil fuels in their strategies.
This webinar examined different approaches to fossil fuel investment to help investors make an informed decision about their strategies. Against a backdrop of intensifying weather events, widely agreed by politicians and scientists to be caused by increasing concentrations of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere, it is clear that action is required to reverse this trajectory. Investment managers, risk managers, equity analysts and impact investment teams.
Green Century and Walden Asset Management provided their perspectives on fossil fuel divestment and engagement – and Lisa Woll, President, US Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment described the steps investors are taking to manage climate risk across diverse portfolios. The webinar also provided insights into how investors can compare their exposure to benchmarks in order to better understand and report their position to stakeholders.
