Politics, civil society, and regulators are increasingly calling upon investors to do their bit in addressing climate change. In order to assess climate risks, investors can use online tools to answer a wide range of questions, among which are: Is my portfolio aligned with global climate targets? What is my exposure to greenhouse gases?
Am I invested in controversial business practices such as hydraulic fracturing or arctic drilling? In this episode of the ISS ESG ‘Foreword’ series, Dr. Maximilian Horster, Head of Climate Solutions, addresses the role of climate change for investors, including options to act upon climate risks such as divesting from climate-tilted investment strategies or using positive incentive loans to support an asset’s climate transition.
