Two-thirds of the world’s fossil fuel resources must remain in the ground to prevent a “roasted world” scenario. Many investors view this unburnable carbon as posing a “carbon asset risk,” with negative consequences for investment portfolios that include significant fossil energy holdings. Yet, getting powerful oil, gas and coal companies to move beyond business-as-usual will require innovative approaches. Join this session to explore actions investors are taking —from engagement to portfolio de-carbonization—to address carbon asset risk and persuade fossil fuel companies to shift capital from high-risk, high-carbon projects to lower-risk, lower-carbon opportunities.
