The 2° Investing Initiative is pleased to invite you to a Finance for Tomorrow week-affiliated event:
Seine, sunrise and sea levels
A breakfast boat cruise on climate scenario analysis
When? Tuesday, 27 November 2018 at 7.45am for departure at 8.00am
Where? Embarcadere Quai de l’horloge – Boat: Henri IV
Since the Paris Agreement, demand from the investment community has been rising significantly to understand how their portfolios contribute to limiting global warming to well under 2°C. How much do their actions contribute to global warming or the mitigation of it? How aligned are their portfolios with the trajectories required by the International Energy Agency? A number of tools, initiatives and frameworks support investors, but how do they actually work in practice?
Come and join us for a breakfast boat cruise on the Seine to find out more about climate scenario analysis in real life and hear from industry experts on how they are tackling the issue.
Dave Jones, California Insurance Commissioner, and Leon Wijnands, ING’s Global Head of Sustainability, will discuss their own approaches to scenario analysis and some of their initial results. Simon Messenger, Head of Corporate and Investor Engagement at the 2° Investing Initiative, will present findings from our latest research and work, as well as discuss future trends.
