Net zero metrics for financial institutions: considering both negative and positive climate impact

Announcement from the CFA Society Ireland:

Many indicators exist to measure the climate impact of companies. Most of them are focused on negative climate impact like carbon foot printing. To understand the climate performance of investment strategies, there are two major steps that cannot be skipped:
(I) go further than traditional climate impact metrics by looking at trajectories and valuing positive impacts and enabling companies
(II) question the impact of Investment strategies as much as the impact of underlying assets.
This presentation will present some tools and approaches in line with these objectives.

There will be an opportunity for Q&A at the end.
