Green Investment Strategies workshop
How are leading asset owners scaling up their green investments?
How can you incorporate green investments into your asset allocation?
How are consultants advising their clients?
The Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) invites you to a workshop where asset owners and investment consultants will explain how they are tackling these questions in their efforts to scale up green investments.
The afternoon will commence with a presentation of results from a new IIGCC survey on the adoption of green investment strategies by asset owners.
This will be followed by two panel discussions with leading asset owners and investment consultants. Asset owners will share their experiences of moving from ‘ambition to asset allocation’ in the development and implementation of green investment strategies. The second panel will consider the role consultants can play in educating and enabling clients to allocate into low carbon investments and the potential for their organisations to help scale-up green investments across the industry as a whole.
