The urgency of preventing the worst extremes of a changing climate is spurring investors, companies, financial intermediaries and policymakers across the world to sharpen their focus on efforts to drive down greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero. Investors are monitoring whether companies have credible plans to reduce their emissions and tracking the alignment of portfolios with the Paris Agreement, which aims to limit global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees Celsius (2°C), preferably no more than 1.5°C, to prevent the worst extremes of a warming world.


Reaching net-zero will demand extraordinary action. Ninety percent of listed companies are currently on an emissions pathway that would put global temperature rise above 1.5°C. It also will demand intuitive, forward-looking tools that help investors differentiate which companies in every sector will help them achieve net-zero and which will get in the way of that goal. Join us as we share some of the solutions that several of the world’s leading institutions have leveraged to both minimize climate risk while capturing solution based opportunities which are poised to provide a potential risk premia as we transition to a low carbon economy.
