Climate Smart Endowment Investing

Endowments represent a powerful - and often overlooked - lever for positive change on equitable climate solutions. Addressing climate risk in portfolios is also critical for being a prudent fiduciary and protecting endowment capital. This session will explore the range of steps endowments can take, from fossil fuel divestment, to investing in climate solutions, and making the commitment to Net Zero Portfolios. It will emphasize the intersectionality of climate and DEI and racial justice. Panelists will share insights on key initiatives, such as the Net Zero Banking Alliance and the Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative, and explain how asset managers can engage with companies on behalf of endowment clients to drive real-world emissions reductions at scale.
