The latest IPCC report and recent climate disasters in various parts of the world are stark reminders of the need to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy. The Intentional Endowment Network’s Net-Zero Steering Committee is leading the charge in the endowments space and several notable endowments, such as Harvard, Stanford, Arizona State, Michigan, and Penn, have already committed to net-zero investment portfolios by 2050. The road to net-zero may be long, but what is the simplest way for an endowment to start the journey? Conducting a carbon footprint assessment of an investment portfolio is a great starting point, as it allows investors to quantify the amount of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) their investments contribute to, compare them to established benchmarks, and devise a strategy for managing their GHG exposure.
Join us for an educational webinar, where we will bring together distinguished speakers from ISS to discuss how endowments can embark on the road to net-zero by conducting carbon footprint assessments and integrating climate risks in their investment analyses.
