Net zero portfolios are an effective and powerful way for investors to reduce risks associated with climate change and the transition to a low-carbon economy. They also accelerate corporate climate action to reduce systemic risk for all investors and to protect current and future generations from climate impacts.
IEN convenes and supports endowments in learning about net zero endowments, making commitments, and participating in shareholder engagement efforts to get portfolio companies onto decarbonization pathways aligned with the 1.5 degree C warming target of the Paris Climate Agreement. This Quarterly Call was open to all IEN members. Participants joined us for presentations from Pedro Henriques da Silva (Director of Shifting Trillions at the Sierra Club Foundation) and Ed Micklem (Vice President and Head of Strategic Partnerships at Tumelo), followed by Q&A and dialogue!
