Climate change is both the biggest risk facing mankind and the greatest opportunity facing investors. Robeco’s 2021 Global Climate Survey shows that 86% of investors have put climate change at the center of their policies for the next two years, and that many will align their assets with the net zero ambition in the same time frame.

The message is clear: investors have a keen interest in the climate and a strong desire to work on decarbonization. Yet there is also a substantial knowledge gap, as well as uncertainty about which steps to take. 

While the willingness among investors to help combat climate change is truly inspiring, many are unsure where to start or how to make a difference. The rocky road to net zero is the main topic of our next Digital Explore event: ‘The biggest climate risk is not seeing the opportunities’. Don’t miss it!
