Expanding ESG and Impact Investing for Physical Assets

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Physical assets ranging from real estate to infrastructure to renewable energy are built to last and expected to provide ongoing value or services to society over several decades. However, climate change increasingly affects all physical assets and sectors and as such, it will impact the portfolio returns and asset valuations on these facilities. Expected returns on sectors such as energy, utilities, and telecoms will be significantly impacted. Governance, environmental, and social factors can drive investment value over time and asset valuations will be affected by how corporations choose to respond to climate issues. While there is no one-size-fits-all approach to the integration of ESG factors, this discussion considers strategies to incorporate a climate change response into investment processes.
