La Française, exploring state-of-the-art approaches to measuring the impacts of climate change!
10 May 2019
A pilot group of twenty institutional investors, including La Française, contributed to the UN Environment Finance Initiative led project and tested first hand state-of-the-art approaches to measuring the impacts of climate change scenarios on their respective portfolios.
The resulting case studies, consolidated in a guide for investors, provide valuable insight and confirm what is no longer a suspicion: the longer governments delay policy action on decarbonization, the higher the resulting costs for companies and hence the lower the returns for investors.
Laurent Jacquier-Laforge, CIO Equities and Managing Director of La Française AM explained: “As a responsible investor, our goal is to make informed investment decisions. The further integration of climate-related risk metrics into our investment process and reporting documents is a positive step. The Pilot group has been a useful forum to challenge methodology and findings and to learn from group discussions. This report will spread the knowledge to a larger public of like-minded investors and stakeholders.”
