Feeling the Heat: Investing in the Time of Climate Change

Date: Tuesday, April 18, 2023 

As the world economies are transitioning toward renewable energy sources to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate climate change, integrating ESG criteria in investment decisions can help identify investment opportunities that manage risk and capture growth.

Regulatory requirements, fiduciary duty and the demands of the investing public have Canadian group retirement savings plan sponsors looking for ways to address the energy transition in general, and climate change in particular, with their choice of investment products.

In this context, asset valuation and selection pose specific challenges to portfolio managers: benchmarking opportunities is an evolving process that needs to be adapted to specific risk profiles, return expectations, capital preservation imperatives and long-term value objectives, to name but a few of the operational principles guiding investment strategies.

Our panelists will address how asset classes, selection and weighting can offer meaningful results to plan sponsors and participants:

  • Fossil-fuel free assets: how to generate value 
  • Are net-zero emissions the path to sustainable growth? 
  • Income strategies: mitigating environmental risks and financing the energy transition 
  • Equity strategies: mitigating climate change as a return opportunity
