Climate change is the largest long-term systemic risk in client portfolios today. There are numerous climate investment approaches, but investors are unclear as to how many of these align with the 1.5 degrees Celsius warming objective, as set out by the Paris Agreement.

The biggest question facing investors is: ‘Do I just want to reduce the emissions in my portfolio, or do I want to be a meaningful part of the solution to climate change?'

In this paper we explore:

  • Some of the pitfalls with the first-generation climate strategies
  • What it means to be Paris or net zero aligned
  • Being part of the solution by adopting a holistic assessment of climate change risks and opportunities and company engagement with a focus on science-based targets
