Alongside potentially ‘unburnable’ fossil fuel reserves, factors such as decreasing clean technology costs, increasing water scarcity and intensifying ‘polluter pays’ regulations are just some of the current and emerging risks that could result in stranded assets, where environmentally unsustainable assets experience premature write-offs, downward revaluations or are converted to liabilities.
These risks are rarely factored into company valuations and this has resulted in over-exposure to environmentally unsustainable assets throughout financial and economic systems.
As an investment manager or asset owner, how can you respond to this challenge? This briefing provides an important update on key market trends and different approaches to managing exposure to stranded assets. Pension funds, Investment managers, risk managers, equity analysts and impact investment teams – this webinar provides guidance on how you can develop and report your approach.
