'Why Net Zero must be inclusive, and how Irish Pension schemes can play their part'

At Ninety One we believe the world needs a fair and inclusive transition plan to Net Zero that works for all its 7.9 billion people. However, as many asset managers, advisors and owners commit to achieving net zero emissions in the future, it may be easier to tilt portfolios to sectors such as big tech, and/or shifting allocations away from emerging markets, in order to give an illusion of climate risk reduction within portfolios.

In this session we will explore how Irish schemes can differentiate between the reduction of “portfolio carbon” and the reduction of carbon emissions in the real world through their global equity allocations, including by investing positively in climate solutions.



This event will be allocated 1 CPD hours by the IAPF for on-going trustee training requirements. We will apply for 1 CPD hour from the LIA (TBC), the IOB (TBC) and the IIPM under category 2. Pensions, Category 3. Savings and Investments and Pension Trustee Practitioners (PTP) hours. If you have a query relating to the CPD hours, please contact the relevant awarding bodies.
