Climate impacts of investments and climate-related financial risks
- January 16, 2018 at 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
- Sitra auditorium, Itämerenkatu 11-13, Helsinki
Assessing climate impacts of investments and climate-related financial risks can be viewed from different viewpoints. Sitra will organise an event looking into these and to follow the release of the results of the climate impact screening of the companies listed on Nasdaq Helsinki in 2017.
Two interesting reports will be released in this seminar: Sitra and ISS-Ethix Climate Solutions present the results of the Climate impact screening of the companies listed on Nasdaq Helsinki, and WWF Finland, Mandatum Life and Sitra release their joint “Guide to Reducing Climate Risk in Investment Portfolio”. Report releases are followed by keynote speeches from Mercer and CDSB discussing the implications of the climate change disclosure from both investor and corporate perspective, and SEB will showcase their novel approach to integrating climate change into equity analysis and valuation processes.
Read more on the results of the report.
