Net Zero: Going beyond the hype

Presented by

Sebastian Schiele, Head of Passive Mandates Sales EMEA & APAC, DWS | Prof. Amin Rajan, CEO, CREATE-Research

About this talk

Combating the consequences of climate change by achieving a "net zero" CO2 balance is one of the most urgent tasks of our time. Institutional investors can play a decisive role here. They are increasingly shifting their capital into companies that are doing pioneering work in this area. Against this backdrop, Sebastian Schiele, Head of Passive Mandates Sales EMEA & APAC at DWS and Prof. Amin Rajan, CEO Create Research will discuss the findings of the Passive Investing Report 2022 Net Zero: Going beyond the hype. 50 large pension plans in 7 key fund jurisdictions have been surveyed. Their practical insights shed light on the challenges ahead, especially in the context of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which is forcing Western nations to seek alternative sources of fossil fuels in the immediate future to ensure energy security. The webcast will give valuable insights of the survey and will address the following topics: • How likely is it that the net zero goal will be met post-COP26? • What are the barriers that need to be addressed by GFANZ and national governments? • How does the goal feature in active and passive investing by pension plans currently? • How has asset stewardship become a linchpin in the net zero journey?
