A growing movement to incorporate social considerations into the response to climate change is being described as the next frontier of responsible investment. This webinar will consider how the transition to a low carbon economy can minimise negative impacts to people and jobs, as well as considering the effect the Covid-19 has had on just transition impact themes.
Wednesday 23 June - 3pm BST/10am ET
- How are social outcomes being understood and weighed up against return metrics and risk?
- Diversity, social justice and equality – how can these themes be incorporated into an impact strategy?
- Impact-weighted accounting – how has the methodology been created and applied? How can social metrics be accounted for?
- Lessons from the pandemic: how has the theme of social impact investing evolved since the events of 2020?
- How did Covid-19 disrupt impact projects related to health, education, homelessness, poverty and in emerging and developed markets? What was the fallout from this?
