As governments and firms produce net zero polices and milestones, CAMRADATA’s latest whitepaper on Net Zero looks at the growing pressure for asset owners and asset managers to foster decarbonisation within the companies they finance.
The whitepaper includes insights from firms such as, Breckinridge Capital Advisors, Newton Investment Management, Global Steering Group for Impact Investing, Isio, Mercer and Phoenix Group who all attended a roundtable hosted by CAMRADATA in London in June.
The report looks at climate risk, the net zero plans that the firms have in place and the responsibilities of asset managers to address climate change, as well as exploring how to better understand the process of decarbonisation and manage investments accordingly.
It considers the challenges ahead, such as the need for regulators to do more to standardise methodologies and reporting, and the importance of engagement and managers being transparent in what they are doing around climate change risk.
It concludes by looking at which organisations or groups are helping consultants and asset managers formulate and achieve their net zero transition.
Natasha Silva, Managing Director, Client Relations, CAMRADATA said, “The challenge of slowing climate change is a global one, recognised by a growing number of actors from the most powerful governments to the humblest firms.
“While most of their net zero policies are less than three years old, they are already beginning to have an effect on the capital allocation of companies and investors. Everyone has a role to play.
“Thanks to greater regulatory scrutiny and obligatory disclosure, who is doing what will find its way into the public realm too. Over time everyone will have a legal obligation to produce a net zero commitment. Our latest whitepaper explores where investors are at on this evolving journey to halting global warming.”
