Climate Transition Webinar with Aviva Investors

In partnership with Aviva Investors, the Investment Innovation Institute [i3] is pleased to convene a webinar to discuss the implications of climate transition to investors’ portfolios.

Climate Transition: Beyond Low Carbon Investing

With the knowledge of the decarbonisation challenge ahead (to limit global warming to 1.5o C) and knowing that we are already experiencing the physical and environmental impacts from climate change, how can investors continue to invest to deliver long-term capital growth for a climate conscious and sustainable future ?.

With combined backgrounds in Environmental Biology, Environmental Technology and Finance, Rick Stathers and Jaime Ramos Martin share their perspectives on how investors can go beyond low carbon investing to build resilience into portfolios.

This webinar will cover topics such as:

  • The urgency and scale of transformation required to align with the 1.5o C warming objective
  • Why we need to go beyond exclusion – as the physical and policy impacts of climate change affect every actor in the global economy
  • How can investors understand and quantify climate transition risk across corporate value chains? What opportunities does this present for alpha generation?
  • How can we actively engage with companies to ensure they are committed to a 1.5oC warming pathway through the adoption of Science Based Targets?
