Session 2B

From Investment Pledges to Active Strategies

– Reaching Targets by 2030

While the growing pledges and commitments from both asset managers and asset owners aimed at helping the world reach net-zero emissions are hugely encouraging, concrete investment strategies and action are crucial. This session will focus on how asset managers and asset owners can better use their influence and voice, outline clear fiduciary duty requirements and drive change at company and portfolio-levels. Focus will be on best practice examples of cross-sector collaboration that have accelerated the successful transition of companies and investor-portfolios.
