Environmental, Social, Corporate Governance Investing Panel Recorded 21 Oct 2020
Meaningful Climate Data, Intentional Investments
As asset owners and regulators increasingly ask investors about climate risk, climate change analysis and integrated investing is becoming a hot topic. While climate analysis and investing are relatively new to the industry, some firms have pioneered investment approaches that thoughtfully integrate climate risk and opportunity. This session will explore the life cycle of emissions approach developed by Mirova; one of ten firms highlighted in the CFA Institute Climate Change Analysis In The Investment Process report.
This practical application event will be structured as a due diligence interview, taking attendees through a deep-dive of Mirova as a firm and their climate integrated investment approach. The topics covered will include structure of the investment team, investment philosophy and process, climate data approach, scenario analysis and benchmarking relative to climate pathways and standard indices, and discussion of company and industry investment examples.
