In recent years, the money invested in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) funds has increased exponentially. As banks and investors pivot towards ESG, companies are, in turn, increasing their focus on best practice in the sustainable debt markets. Increasingly reliable data and more sophisticated analytics tools are helping to fuel this trend as financiers step up their benchmarking activities in the bond and loan markets. With new challenges and opportunities in sustainable finance occurring because of commitments and pledges from COP26, lenders and investors from major financial institutions will play a pivotal role. Growth in ESG assets shows no signs of abating, and as more investors use ESG criteria to drive decisions, are you ready to take action in 2022? Featuring: Noel Hughes - Partner - Finance, Vinson & Elkins Caitlin Snelson - Senior Associate Finance, Vinson & Elkins Michaela Seimen - Executive Director, Sustainable Debt Strategist, UBS Will Prentis, Investment Analyst, Wellington Management Moderated by Tony Hay, Joint Managing Director, Responsible Investor

Sustainable investing (SI) fund labels have gained significant prominence in recent years as tools to provide transparency and drive capital towards the sustainability transition. Belgium’s Towards Sustainability label, Germany and France’s SRI and Greenfin labels are just some examples from a long list that continues to proliferate. At the same time, the labels form a highly divergent and fragmented landscape, potentially causing major drawbacks for both investors and the SI agenda at large. A recent publication by Qontigo’s sustainable investment team examines the criteria used in the 12 most important frameworks setting standards for SI products in Europe, where most of the effort has been concentrated to date. The study provides a like-for-like comparison of exclusionary criteria and portfolio-construction techniques as applied in each individual label. On February 24, 2022, we are bringing together a panel representing regulatory and standard-setting authorities and investment management experts to discuss the following topics: -What are the existing labels’ aims? Which criteria are aligned with each other and where do they diverge? -Is it feasible to design a financial product that aligns with all labels? What are the implications for the scalability of SI products? -What are the pros and cons of attempting to limit the number of labels to the bare minimum through standardization, as opposed to encouraging divergence on the grounds that there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to SI? -What does this all mean for the ultimate goal of transitioning to a more sustainable economy?

This webinar will be broadcast in Japanese. 開催日時:2021年12月9日(木) 日本時間 午後1時-2時 世界的な気候変動リスク・地球温暖化と、脱炭素の流れの中でCOP26が終了し、各国が2050年カーボンニュートラルに向けて動きを加速し始めました。企業は気候リスクが将来のビジネスに与えるリスクおよび機会を経営戦略として考慮することが必須となり、TCFD等にしたがって開示することが求められるようになっています。日本でも2022年4月からスタートする東京証券取引所の新市場区分においてプライムに属する企業に対して、TCFDに準拠した気候リスク・収益機会の開示をおこなうことがコーポレート・ガバナンス・コードに盛り込まれました。企業にとって、TCFDに基づく気候変動リスクの開示や脱炭素に向けた移行・機会にどう対応すべきか、投資家は投資ポートフォリオにおける気候変動リスクと機会をどう考えるべきか、運用者は気候変動リスクを考慮してどのような投資商品を投資家に提供していくのかなどが喫緊の課題となっています。こうした課題の最前線に立つ様々な分野の専門家をお迎えし、脱炭素社会に向けた移行・機会と資産運用について、ロンドン証券取引所グループ傘下のインデックス・プロバイダーであるFTSE Russell が、オンラインセミナーを行います。 アジェンダ: オープニング FTSE Russell 日本代表 多湖 理 ビデオメッセージ Transition Pathway Initiative (TPI)会長 兼 英国国教会年金理事会(CEPB)最高投資責任者 アダム マシューズ様 プレゼンテーション “低炭素への移行をパッシブポートフォリオにと入り入れる - FTSE TPI Climate Transition インデックス” FTSE Russell サステナブル投資部門 日本代表 森敦仁 パネルディスカッション “TCFDに基づく気候関連リスクの開示 - 脱炭素社会に向けた移行・機会と資産運用” パネリスト: 第一生命保険株式会社 責任投資推進部長 石井博子 様 野村アセットマネジメント株式会社  責任投資調査部 シニアESGスペシャリスト 山我哲平 様 KPMG あずさサステナビリティ株式会社 アシスタントマネジャー  岩井美緒 様 モデレーター: FTSE Russell サステナブル投資部門 日本代表 森敦仁  ※ 同業他社のお申込みはお断りさせて頂きます。
