BREAKFAST: Mitigating Climate Risk in Passive Portfolios: Shifting the Trillions

We'd like to invite you to our complimentary breakfast on Mitigating climate risk in passive portfolios: Shifting the trillions, taking place during the PRI in Person this September in Paris. This side event is open to both PRI attendees and a wider audience.
In this one hour seminar, experts will look at the long-term impacts of climate risk considerations for investors, no matter what asset class. 
We explain the importance of climate risk for equity and bond investors.


The reality: Climate change is a challenge which impacts the global economy at all levels. The unprecedented scale of extreme weather events, climate change mitigation and adaptation activity and the economic transition to a greener economy are increasingly material and need to be incorporated in the investment process

Equities: There is no consistent taxonomy of green products and services and it is not typically disclosed with any specificity by companies. We will share a view of the EU taxonomy from an index provider's perspective

Fixed income: Despite government debt market is often overlooked as part of investors' ESG/climate change processes, which are more focused on corporates. We will discuss how investors can identify climate risk through indexes
