Details: Recent studies apparently prove that companies that build sustainability into their core strategies are outperforming those that fail to show leadership. So why aren’t more pension funds doing more in this field? What are some of the practical considerations when implementing a climate change strategy into a portfolio and are there still barriers to implementation that need to be overcome? Our panel of speakers will consider: - With many pension funds using funds to invest rather than segregated mandates and with the increased move globally into passive investments, what effective influence can pension funds have on the climate change agenda? - How can you really measure the impact of climate change on your investments and decide what to do with them (e.g. sell shares, engage with management etc.)? - How can you best understand the challenges of climate change on your non-equity assets classes such as fixed income and also on less liquid ones such as infrastructure? - Is a specific focus on low carbon companies enough or should we worry more about sustainability generally? - Are there opportunities arising from climate change which pension funds can seek to exploit?
