Your role in helping solve the Climate Crisis

The financial industry needs to take strong and urgent action in the face of climate change risk. Defined contribution and defined benefit pension plans will have to address risks such as carbon-related shocks to financial asset values. History may well look back on 2020 as the year the world finally woke up to the threats posed by climate change and in this session Steve Waygood, Chief Responsible Investment Officer at Aviva Investors will share his views and look at the year ahead.

With the UK and Italy partnering to host COP 26, as well as hosting the G7 and G20 summits respectively, it presents a very rare alignment of strategic and geopolitical opportunities to accelerate the greening of the financial industry. Every part of society needs to take strong and urgent action in the face of climate change, and this includes pension schemes. To help solve the massive and complex task ahead, we will need to harness the innovation and creativity that a market-based system incentivises. A Green New Deal, complemented by the IPCF – International Panel on Climate Finance – is desperately needed to bring cohesion to the currently confused global climate strategy.


This event will be allocated 1.15 CPD hours by the IAPF for on-going trustee training requirements. We received 1 CPD hour from the LIA (LIA10618_2021 ), the IOB (2021-0161) and the IIPM under category 3. Savings & Investment. If you have a query relating to the CPD hours, please contact the relevant awarding bodies.
