IT’S NOT easy for business managers and investors to understand the implications of climate change. The latest IPCC report which made headlines in August 2021 runs to a daunting 3900 pages.
Pendal Group’s responsible investing specialists have prepared a two-part climate change guide for financial advisers and investment professionals.
In late 2020 we published part one, Climate Change and Business: Key Concepts, which explains how major climate-related issues create risks for businesses.
Now we have published part two, Climate Change and Investing: Key concepts, which covers the implications for investing.

Performance figures are calculated in accordance with the Financial Services Council (FSC) standards. Performance data (post-fee) assumes reinvestment of distributions and is calculated using exit prices, net of management costs. Performance data (pre-fee) is calculated by adding back management costs to the post-fee performance. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.
