The race to net zero

The race to net zero


The race to net zero is on. Governments, industry, and asset owners are collectively focusing on the effects of climate change and reducing net carbon emissions to zero by 2050. Will we get there, and what is our role as investors?

Watch as our esteemed panel of experts in this field: Dr Saphira Rekker, a leading academic in finance at the UQ Business School, University of Queensland whose research focuses on corporate climate performance measurement and sustainable finance; Jenn-Hui Tan, Global Head of Stewardship and Sustainable Investing at Fidelity and Kris Atkinson, Portfolio Manager for the Fidelity Sustainable Reduced Carbon Bond Fund break down:

  • Where climate change is today
  • The goals of the Paris Agreement, why they are so important, and the science of holding global warming to 1.5°C
  • The implications of the Paris Agreement for investors and how they should be looking at climate change
  • The role of the investment industry
  • Constructing portfolios offering strong risk/return characteristics whilst making a positive environmental impact.
