Presented by

Francis Condon and Christopher Greenwald, UBS Asset Management; Brendan Maton, IPE

About this talk

As the need intensifies for the world to transition to a low-carbon economy, we look at the ways in which aligning to the 2 degree global warming scenario can provide investors with opportunities. In particular, we will explore the benefits of adopting a low cost, rules-based approach to integrating climate risk, with a focus on: • Incorporating a forward looking approach aligned to forward-looking carbon reduction targets • The use of qualitative and quantitative factors to tilt exposures towards those companies more likely to follow the 2 degree reduction scenario and away from those likely to track the 6 degree scenario • The role of an active engagement and proxy voting policy to drive positive climate change action Presented by: - Christopher Greenwald, PhD, MBA: Head of Sustainable and Impact Investing Research and Stewardship, Executive Director, UBS Asset Management - Francis Condon, M.Phil: Sustainable and Impact Investing Research Analyst, Executive Director, UBS Asset Management Moderated by: Brendan Maton, IPE
