  • US Directors’ Duties: Private Equity backed companies and ESG Oct 1 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The PRI, Debevoise & Plimpton, LACERA, Blackstone and Saïd Business School, University of Oxford
    The PRI has commissioned a legal memorandum from law firm Debevoise & Plimpton on the duties of US directors, as they pertain to ESG. This piece follows from a similarly commissioned report in 2019 looking at UK directors’ duties. The US memo looks specifically at the law of Delaware, and the PRI intends it to inform GPs whose investment team members sit on portfolio company boards.
    In this webinar, we will discuss the conclusions of the memo and what they mean for US GPs seeking to address ESG issues at their portfolio companies.

  • Accounting for Climate: The Numbers Investors Need Sep 24 2020 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins

    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.

  • Preventing the Next Pandemic: How Can Investors Manage Deforestation Risks? Recorded: Sep 2 2020 55 mins
    The PRI
    During this webinar, we will discuss the link between deforestation and viruses such as Covid-19. We will also provide insights into which assessment tools are currently available to investors to better manage deforestation risk in their portfolios.

    The exploitation of wildlife by humans through hunting, trade, habitat degradation and urbanization has been found to facilitate close contact between wildlife and humans, which increases the risk of virus spillover. During the first part of the webinar, we will present some of the scientific evidence on the role of deforestation, as well as lessons learned during the Covid-19 crisis so far.

    In the second part of the webinar, we will discuss the findings of a report authored by KLP, Storebrand and Rainforest Foundation Norway. Investors will learn about deforestation-related assessment tools and data gaps and their options for integrating deforestation data into existing systems for ESG and risk analysis.

  • COVID-19 Crisis - A Test for EM Sovereign Bond Investors Recorded: Jul 15 2020 64 mins
    Kevin Daly (Aberdeen), Fabio Massimo Natalucci (IMF), Frank Gill (S&P), Carmen Nuzzo (PRI)
    The COVID-19 crisis is hitting emerging economies more than developed countries. Beyond the immediate health and economic emergency, the pandemic will take a toll on countries that are heavily reliant on commodity exports, global trade, tourism and external financing. This webinar will look at the consequences for emerging market credit risk, the opportunities for a ‘greener, smarter and fairer’ recovery – as proposed by the IMF – and what role sovereign bondholders can play.

  • DOL's Proposed Rule: Financial Factors in Selecting Plan Investments Recorded: Jul 14 2020 44 mins
    The PRI
    This webinar will discuss the Department of Labor's rule proposal entitled “Financial Factors in Selecting Plan Investments”, its potential impacts on ESG integration, and actions the PRI is taking and encourages signatories to take in response.

    On June 23, the Department of Labor (DOL) issued a notice of proposed rulemaking entitled “Financial Factors in Selecting Plan Investments” (“Proposal”) aimed at clarifying the obligations related to consideration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors by fiduciaries who oversee private sector pension and defined contribution plans covered by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). However, the Proposal mischaracterizes ESG integration and fails to distinguish between ESG integration and economically targeted investing. This is likely to lead to confusion for ERISA fiduciaries and cost to plan savers.

    Recommendations and Resources:
    We recommend PRI signatories write to the DOL requesting an extension to the consultation period, and prepare to respond to the consultation. The current deadline for comments is July 30th.

    - PRI's request for extension of the comment period from 30 days to 90 days, submitted to the DOL: https://dwtyzx6upklss.cloudfront.net/Uploads/s/l/z/dolesgrequestforextensionfinal_862506.pdf

  • Beyond divestment – climate change strategies for endowments Recorded: Jul 9 2020 92 mins
    The PRI and IEN
    University and college endowments and foundations face continued calls to divest from fossil fuels. While the merits of divestment are debated, questions remain as to what a comprehensive strategy to manage climate-related risks and opportunities looks like and what actions should be employed – from climate scenario analysis and its implications for asset allocation, to manager selection and stewardship.

    This joint PRI and IEN webinar will explore the investment implications of climate change and highlight tools and resources endowments can leverage to develop a thoughtful climate strategy. You will hear from several endowments on the multipronged approaches they've implemented to manage climate-related risks, invest in opportunities and align endowment investments with organisational missions.
