IEN Pre-Summit Webinar: Climate Risk and Fiduciary Best Practice

Date: January 30, 2020

This webinar provides a grounding in the key issues that fiduciaries are facing related to incorporating climate risk and other material factors into their investment process, ahead of the 2020 Higher Education Climate Leadership Summit and its Endowment Investing Forum.

While this webinar is particularly relevant to those preparing to participate in the Summit, it is open to the full IEN community.

Financial and legal experts from IEN's Fiduciary Duty Working Group are joined by a senior director from Ceres' Investor Network on Climate Risk to set the stage for the Summit's Endowment Investing Forum. The panelists  discuss how ESG investing and climate risk analysis helps meet the duty of prudence and enhance the investment process. They also describe best practices for building board consensus about how to incorporate these factors into the investment process.
