Responsible investment dialogues #2 - Aligning investments with the Paris Agreement

The financial sector has an important role to play in achieving the globally agreed ambition to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees, and an increasing number of investors are committed to low carbon investment aligned with the Paris Agreement.

Amongst motivating factors are the recognition of climate change as a major systemic risk and adjustment to expected market changes, but also pressure from consumers, citizens and politicians for investors to be one of the drivers in the needed transition of the economy as well as the ethical question of profiting on business that adversely affect current and future living conditions.

As the pathway for climate transition is not yet clear in its details, it is still an unresolved challenge to decide on strategies for aligning portfolios to the Paris Agreement. At this meeting, we delve into discussions on assessment methods and criteria and requirements for companies and actions to be taken by investors for a timely transition.

Note: The meeting is reserved for members of DIEH and Dansif as well as selected stakeholders.

Morgenbriefing: Er klimakompensation helt i skoven?

Overvejer I at klimakompensere i forbindelse med jeres CO2-aftryk? Kom til morgenbriefing hos DIEH og find ud af, hvad der er op og ned i debatten, og hvordan I træffer de valg, der er mest rigtige for jer, hvis I ønsker at klimakompensere.

 

Bliv klogere på kompleksiteten af klimakompensation, når Sebastian Stryhn Kjeldtoft, en af de undersøgende journalister bag Politikens klimakredit-serie, fortæller om dagbladets afsløringer af fusk og fejltagelser i forbindelse med klimakompensation.

 

Hør også John Nordbo, klimarådgiver fra Care, fortælle om de muligheder, man har for at klimakompensere som organisation. Hvad virker, og hvilke fakta kan vi regne med, når vi skal navigere i klimaskoven?
