To succeed in a changing climate, investors must understand their exposure to climate risk and the investment opportunities that will arise during the transition to a low-carbon global economy. Designed and led by Deputy Director Alicia Seiger, the Steyer-Taylor Center for Energy Policy and Finance’s Investing in a New Climate roundtable series aims to help asset owners develop climate-wise portfolio management strategies. The events in this series bring together investors, Stanford faculty and researchers, and best-in-class practitioners, to engage in a fact-based, action-oriented conversation.
Participating investors will:
- develop a conceptual framework to incorporate climate science, policy, and innovation into investment decisions,
- gain exposure to portfolio strategies, data sources, and tools to assess climate exposure,
- survey the landscape of available investment opportunities,
- and build a community of climate-wise investors.
