Newton Investment Management – Defining our approach to net zero

The sixth and latest report by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in August 2021 warned that the world would reach 1.5 degrees Celsius of warming by 2030 under all scenarios examined. At the COP26 climate summit last November, there was much talk but still a relative dearth of concrete detail over how net-zero carbon emissions would be achieved.

What is clear though is that if we are to collectively hit the pledged net-zero targets, there will need to be an extraordinary and global effort, and asset managers will have a crucial role to play in the transition.
