About this talk

As the fight against climate change intensifies, more companies than ever are understanding the pressing need to transform their business plans and prepare for a net zero future. As of June 2022, more than a third of the world’s largest publicly-traded companies had net zero targets, up from one fifth in December 2020, according to Net Zero Tracker.* As businesses increasingly incorporate environmental and carbon reduction commitments into their business strategies, they also need to consider the impact on their employees, potentially redeploying or retraining workers, as well as assessing the impact of their actions on the communities in which they operate. Against this evolving backdrop, the reasons for transforming your portfolio and aligning with net zero have never been stronger. In Episode 4 of AXA Investment Managers’ original series, 'Investors’ ESG Guidebook: The Road to Equitable and Sustainable Growth’ hear from thought leaders from across the responsible investing space about their views on the future of investing on the road to net zero. Find out about strategies that could potentially help to future-proof your portfolio and how to adopt a net zero approach. Topics for discussion include: - The case for portfolio transformation on the road to net zero - What to consider when building a carbon transition portfolio and how challenges could be overcome - Driving impact: Lead your team through transformation and adopt a net zero approach *Net Zero Stocktake 2022 | Net Zero Tracker
