  • Governance Assessment: A Similar Approach for Equities vs. Debt Investors? Jan 13 2021 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The PRI
    Governance evaluation is prominent in ESG analysis and security pricing. During this webinar, we will explore whether and to what extent governance factors are assessed differently by equity and fixed income investors, including relevant metrics.
  • US Climate Policy in 2021: What Investors Need to Know Dec 2 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The PRI
    The likelihood of a sweeping U.S. climate policy being implemented has increased considerably in recent months. A wide range of proposals has been floated, and the Biden campaign itself laid out a comprehensive plan to tackle carbon emissions and climate resilience through a variety of statutory, regulatory and fiscal approaches. Nonetheless, should Biden win the presidency, the rubber will hit the road early next year as the federal government re-engages on an issue that has only grown more salient and pressing for institutional investors. What are the most likely areas of policy action in the U.S.? What do investors need to see in terms of frameworks, standards, and market signals across sectors of the real economy? How is the U.S. “Inevitable Policy Response” to climate change similar to – and divergent from – the approaches being taken in other major economies (EU, China, etc.)? Join the PRI for a webinar in which we will discuss these and other timely questions.

    Speakers include:
    Heather Slavkin Corzo, Head of US Policy, PRI
    Sharon Hendricks, Chair of the Board, CalSTRS and Board Member, PRI

  • US Insurers and ESG Incorporation in Credit Risk Nov 9 2020 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The PRI, New York State Dept. of Financial Services, Conning Investment Management and TIAA General Account
    The global fixed income community is increasingly seeking ways to factor in ESG criteria and sustainability considerations when allocating capital and managing risks; and the majority of credit ratings agencies have begun to reflect ESG factors in credit risk analysis. But while European based insurers have been publicly embracing and reporting on the incorporation of ESG, their US counterparts have been less forthcoming even though portfolio asset risk and credit risk is certainly top of mind for the industry.

    Please join the PRI and the CFA Society Boston on November 9th to kick off a series of events exploring responsible investing and the US insurance industry. In this session, insurance investment portfolio practitioners will discuss their current ESG approach alongside PRI’s Head of Fixed Income Carmen Nuzzo and New York State Dept. of Financial Services, Director of Sustainability and Climate Initiatives, Yue (Nina) Chen. The conversation will also look to identify industry trends we may expect to take shape in the coming year.

    Confirmed speakers:
    Carmen Nuzzo, Head of Fixed Income, PRI
    Yue (Nina) Chen, Director of Sustainability and Climate Initiatives, New York State Dept. of Financial Services

    Investors are calling out for hard information on the financial impacts climate change will have on companies. The financials define profitability and drive executive remuneration, so ensuring they properly reflect climate-related risks is crucial. TCFD and other initiatives go a long way in providing this information, but a focus on the front end reporting only provides half the story. Investment decisions, both by companies and investors, also depend on the numbers disclosed in the audited financial statements.

    Fuller financial disclosures enable investors to incorporate climate risks into their investment decision making, helping focus investment on those companies that are more likely to thrive in a carbon-constrained future. Currently, most companies assume business as usual in their financial statements, while at the same time in the annual report recognising that business as usual is something that the planet simply cannot sustain.

    This is why the IASB’s (International Accounting Standards Board) accounting treatment of climate issues is so crucial. The IASB, has issued a paper making clear that material climate change risks must be incorporated in IFRS financial reporting. If properly followed it will have profound implications for the way companies are valued and the decisions made by investors. In this webinar we examine the implications of the IASB paper and what the accounting profession, investors and regulators will need to do to ensure that ensure companies declare profits consistent with a sustainable world.

  • Consultation on PRI’s Human Rights Framework for Institutional Investors Recorded: Sep 8 2020 59 mins
    The PRI
    The responsibility of institutional investors to respect human rights is reflected in international human rights standards, and constitute a universal, normative expectation by employees, beneficiaries, clients, governments, and wider society. It was clearly defined by the UN in 2011, following extensive stakeholder consultation, and immediately reflected in OECD standards. These expectations have increased – driven by growing visibility and urgency of many human rights issues – and a better understanding of the role of investors in shaping real-world outcomes.

    In this webinar we will speak about PRI’s human rights programme – why and how investors should respect human rights – and provide signatories and other stakeholders with an opportunity to ask questions as part of a formal PRI consultation on the topic.

    Speakers:
    Fiona Reynolds, CEO, PRI
