  • We are delighted to invite you to our Explore event where leading academics and investors meet to discuss key topics around sustainable investing.

    This year, we focus on climate change and the Paris Agreement. How can investors and asset managers contribute to achieving net zero by 2050? What challenges do we face? How can we be the change we want to see?

  • We will also discuss how active ownership can help transform companies. Robeco strongly believes in using engagement with companies as a means of pursuing positive change. This can be seen in several engagement programs that are directly related to climate change, with an increasing focus on decarbonization.

    But how does science assess these efforts? Keynote Speaker, Prof. Dr. Reto Knutti evaluates the effectiveness of the financial industry from a scientific perspective. Are the steps taken sufficient or is further action needed?
