Sustainable Investor Webinar Series 2021
Covid-19 has unleashed an unprecedented social and economic crisis and clearly also caused a slowdown to the SDG progress, but the response presents an opportunity to accelerate the shift to a more sustainable economy. The coronavirus crisis strikes us at a time when we have about a decade left to achieve a low-carbon transition and the need to avoid reaching more than 1.5 degrees Celsius warming at all costs. Climate change requires policy makers and business leaders to understand the physical, socio-economic and financial risks and impacts of climate change and examine all business decisions and solutions aimed at sustainable change with a focus to avoiding or reducing those risks. Sustainability is no longer a “nice to have”, but has become a “need to have”.
Our sustainable investing webinar series will explore a range of topics in all relevant asset classes, the drivers of change and megatrends, such as innovation, transport and energy transition, investing in biodiversity, and finally technical and political drivers, such as data collection or evaluation of policies.
What companies and investors need to know now
The webinar series provides a forum for discussion on data collection and how to measure, manage and report sustainability impacts. The EU Disclosure Regulation will come into force in March 2021 and will affect, among others, insurance companies offering investment products. The aim of the regulation is to harmonize sustainability-related rules at European level. Sustainability will become a central criterion in the mandatory communication of capital management companies and funds.
How are ESG criteria integrated into investment decisions? How are the effects of decisions that are not ESG-compliant taken into account? If no consideration is given, justification must be given as to why this is not done. That’s why decision-makers should start looking at the implications of the regulation now – to rethink their portfolios and business models.
The webinar series is designed for investors, asset managers, and companies seeking to manage environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks, as well as those seeking to make a positive contribution to global goals.
