Martijn de Vree, Hannah Skeates & Henrietta Pacquement, Allspring Global Investments
In our previous IPE Webcast, we highlighted the important role of credit in facilitating meaningful and specific climate transition choices. Today we will introduce the additional dimension of de-risking as we strive to Mind the Carbon (!).
Given the importance of credit in the de-risking process, we believe that viewing credit portfolios through a climate lens is a vital opportunity for investors to become active stakeholders in the transition to net zero.
Our Panel will offer their perspectives on:
• The benefits to investors of incorporating climate resilience in asset allocation
• How the process of de-risking can drag a portfolio’s carbon footprint in the wrong direction without careful design and execution
• How active management of fixed income portfolios can be used to facilitate specific carbon goals, with awareness of both carbon intensity reductions and forward-looking views on the ability of corporates to align to a net-zero future
We will also preview Allspring’s research into how to analyze whether companies are helping or hindering the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
There will be time at the end for Q&A.
