Decarbonising portfolios might be a priority, but cutting emissions is far from straightforward. On the one hand, it is often hard for investors to compare the metrics provided by corporates or to understand which ones have the most significance across different industries. On the other, they know they must also consider where firms are going, often a more important factor than where they have been, through the transition plans that are increasingly being mandated by regulators.
Increasingly the transition to the low-carbon economy is not necessarily linear. This panel looked at best practice approaches to understanding and managing the climate and broader environmental risks in portfolios and how can we ensure a just transition.
