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 this roundtable where Net Zero Asset Owners Alliance will discuss business strategy, targets and performance metrics to enable an orderly transition to net zero emissions and how they expect asset managers to engage with them.
This roundtable will update the global asset management community on how net zero target setting can happen across asset classes, geographies, and sectors, with a focus on implementation strategy and the need for actionable interim target-setting in order to achieve the 2050 net zero goal across key sectors.
The session is designed for asset managers who have made, or who plan to make, net zero commitments heading into the COP26.
