In the past six months, a number of frameworks have become available to help investors in the process of aligning their investments with the ambition to realize a net zero economy by 2050. This white paper summarizes the key components for Paris-aligned investing, based on guidance from these new frameworks and initiatives.
It also shares Robeco’s views and experiences in developing its own net zero roadmap, and provides a number of case studies with concrete solutions for Paris-aligned investing. These solutions include the climate strategies we’ve developed in line with the EU Benchmarks Regulation, our research on carbon beta as a forward-looking investment metric, and our engagement on climate with carbon-intensive companies in the utilities, automotives, and oil and gas sectors.
