    The PRI and UNEP- FI
    This webinar, co-hosted by the PRI and the UNEP FI, will bring together leading actors in banking and investment industries to explore the extent to which ESG factors are considered when originating and assessing loans, which back CLOs and other structured products. During the webinar we will discuss current market gaps, how ESG consideration for risk assessment couples with the need to redeploy capital towards specific environmental and social objectives through loans. Furthermore, we will consider how to ensure that the ESG information is consistent and useful through the financing chain, whilst exploring differences between the European and the US market practices.

  • Investor Climate Action Plans (ICAPs) launch: climbing the ladder to Net Zero Recorded: Jul 20 2021 60 mins
    The PRI, UNEP-FI and CDP as an Investor Agenda webinar
    As global investors move to align their portfolios with net-zero emissions targets in time for 2050, what will be required to ensure systematic and meaningful progress? Join the Investor Agenda launch of the Investor Climate Action Plans (ICAPs) Expectations Ladder to find out.
    The ICAPs Expectations Ladder defines opportunities for investor action on climate across four interlocking areas - investment strategy, corporate engagement, policy advocacy and investor disclosure, and also examines governance. It identifies the steps required for investors to create a comprehensive climate action plan that can enable progress towards achieving a net-zero carbon economy by 2050. The ICAPs approach helps investors no matter where they are in their journey to better integrate climate change risks and opportunities into their investment process and climb up the ladder to net-zero.
    The webinar is co-convened by Investor Agenda partners UNEP-FI, CDP and the PRI. Join us to learn how you can use the ladder to reinforce existing efforts and scale up a systematic approach to climate action across your organisation.

  • Amplifying the S in ESG: Investor Myth Buster Recorded: Jul 7 2021 63 mins

    In the world of ESG investing the integration of social performance assessment has seen insufficient progress over the years, and in consequence is plagued by many challenges and misconceptions.

This webinar will bring together representatives of the Working Group and endorsers to discuss the different ‘myths’, the real challenges in tackling the S of ESG but also providing clear next steps for investor action.

  • The New Consultation from the Financial Stability Board’s TCFD Recorded: Jun 23 2021 59 mins
    The PRI, TCFD, Nordea, McKinsey & Company and Generation Investment Management
    2021 is set to be a landmark year for climate reporting. The G7 finance ministers have recently agreed to make TCFD reporting mandatory, more countries are likely to follow in the build-up to COP 26. Part of the success of the TCFD has been the non-prescriptive nature of the recommendations that can be adopted and applied in many jurisdictions.
    Yet, as the countries move towards TCFD based regulation, there is a risk of fragmentation and differing interpretation of how the TCFD should be implemented. To reduce this the Taskforce has been working on and now published new proposed guidance for metrics, targets and transition planning. This webinar will be an opportunity for signatories to hear and ask questions on the new guidance and the related consultation (which closes on 7 July).

    Speakers include:
    - Kaja Pergar, Secretariat, TCFD
    - Peter Sandahl, Head of Sustainability, Nordea
    - Carter Powis, Engagement Manager, McKinsey & Company
    - David Blood, CEO, Generation Investment Management
    - Moderated by: Martin Skancke, Board Chair, PRI & TCFD member
