PIP19 - Managing physical climate risk in infrastructure investments

Presented by

Simon Whistler, Senior Specialist, Investment Practices, PRI

About this talk

The impacts of climate change are no longer a distant phenomenon. 2018 was again a costly year for natural disasters in the US, Europe and Asia at $155bn, following a record-breaking year of losses in 2017. Together with members of the PRI Infrastructure Advisory Committee, this session will ask: • how should investors assess the future trajectory of potential risk? • What frameworks and tools are available to assess infrastructure and help inform investor decision making? • Is there a need to look at a stressed case for physical climate risk, and if so, how could this be done? Kate Bromley, Head of Responsible Investment, QIC Isabelle Combarel, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, SWEN Capital Partners Masaaki Nagamura, General Manager, Tokio Marine Sylvain Vanston, Head of ESG Integration, AXA Group Jean-Yves Wilmotte, Manager, Financial Services, Carbone 4 Moderated by Simon Whistler, Senior Specialist, Investment Practices, PRI
