Macro Minutes: Challenges and Solutions for Net Zero/Paris-Aligned Investors

Key Points

  • Net zero strategies lack industry standards, but common features include keeping portfolio emissions on a Paris-aligned pathway, financing the transition to a low carbon economy and active ownership.
  • Investors face real challenges in implementing net zero strategies and should consider investment risks in evaluating strategies.
  • Investment portfolio decarbonisation is just one aspect of responsible investing and investors should partner with experienced managers on their unique goals.
Investing in financial markets involves a risk of loss and there is no guarantee that all or any invested capital will be repaid. Past performance neither guarantees nor reliably indicates future performance. The value of investments and the income from them will fluctuate with world financial markets and international currency exchange rates.
