Innovation and measurement of carbon footprint towards net-zero

Tuesday 07 December 2021 | 17:00 - 18:00 | Webinar

This session is brought to you by CFA UK's Innovation in Asset Management working group

In the wake of COP26, one of the major challenges faces by investors and their clients is measuring and tracking the carbon footprint of their portfolios, but the path to achieving this can be fraught with challenges.  How do you source accurate data and measure progress?  What does best practice look like?  How can technology and innovation play a role?  What differences exist between asset classes?
To explore these problems, Fabrizio Palmucci (Senior Advisor, Climate Bonds Initiative) will be joined by a number of high profile experts from across the worlds of institutional asset management and ownership, climate data solutions and private client wealth management, including:

Daniel Klier, CEO of Arabesque S-Ray and former Global Head of Sustainable Finance for HSBC
Michel Leveillee, Director, Climate risks and issues, CDPQ – an institutional investor managing C$389bn of public and parapublic pension plans
Stephen Metcalf, Head of Sustainable Investing at RBC Wealth Management International

Where recordings are made, these are a member benefit that are accessed through the member-only platform, CFA UK Discover.
