With the 21st meeting of the Conference of Parties (COP21) in late November, thoughtful investors may be asking:
"How can I impact global climate change with my investment portfolio?"
"How might government response to climate change affect my portfolio?"
And "How can I take action to manage carbon risk?"

We will take a look at:
• Decarbonization: Theory to practice
• Investor challenges/risks
• How investors can mitigate these risks
The interactive session will be moderated by Responsible Investor magazine.
