Solange Le Jeune, ESG Analyst, discusses her recent report on governance within banks:
-Since the financial crisis, banks have been through a number of issues, such as financial losses and reputational risk, and we’re now starting to see change take place from the highest level of the organisation
-We have seen some interesting trends, such as companies having non-executive committees and banks appointing Chief Risk Officers with non-financial backgrounds
-One of the key learnings of the report is that banks need to invest more in risk management, in terms of allocating the right resources and budget – companies that address this in the right way should be able to begin to restore trust and get back on track

Jessica Ground, Global Head of Stewardship at Schroders, and team
In this session, the Team will discuss our Climate Progress Dashboard, which monitors if global action is enough to limit global warming to 2 degrees. We will also discuss our Carbon Value at Risk Model. Combining analysis of supply chains, cost structures, prices and volumes to simulate real world impacts from carbon pricing, its results bear very little correlation to conventional measures. Finally we ask if this is the end of the road for fossil fuel companies, or if there might be some redemption.
