Transition Assets – A pathway to net zero
Fossil fuels are a threat to life on Earth, yet breaking our reliance on them is not easy. They power our homes and businesses, enable us to travel the world and build products that make our lives easier.
But if we are to keep temperature rises aligned with the 1.5-degree pathway, investment in alternatives is needed and not just in wind farms and solar panels. So how can institutional investors reduce our reliance on fossil fuels?

Biodiversity – Paradise lost?
Biodiversity supports life on Earth. It feeds us, purifies our air, provides us with medicines, fights climate change and could protect us from natural disasters such as flooding. Yet pollution, construction and overfishing are not only putting half of the world’s GDP at risk but our lives too.
This is one of the biggest sustainability issues we face. So what are institutional investors doing to stop the destruction of our ecosystem?
ESG ratings – What’s the score?
Non-financial corporate disclosures are inconsistent, making it difficult to build an accurate ESG profile of a particular company. Rating providers claim they can bring clarity, but rarely reach the same conclusion on individual companies.
Is this because there are too many factors to consider or are these ratings simply not fit for purpose?
The big S: Making a social impact
Using institutional capital to build a better world is not just about cutting harmful gas emissions and improving access to fresh water. It also involves tackling social challenges, such as providing adequate housing, access to education and sufficient healthcare as well as treating employees with dignity and respect.
So where should institutional investors use their capital to reduce inequality?
