Climate Change & Disclosure Requirements –

Focusing on Long Term Opportunities and

Risks while meeting Short Term Milestones


26 May 2021



15.50 Registration for 16.00 start – ends 17.00 followed by informal discussion



With pension scheme under increasing pressure, in the short term, to meet regulatory demands on managing and measuring Climate risks, how can you ensure you also focus on the potential long term implications for your pension fund and investments of climate change. Our speakers will aim to provide insights on the dilemma between the short term regulatory requirements vs considering the long term implications. We will aim to discuss issues including:


  • Long Term - How is Climate Change actually going to change the outlook for returns?

  • Where will you find the best climate change investment opportunities?

  • How can you best minimise risks within your existing asset allocation?

  • How should you consider the implications for scheme liabilities and the covenant of sponsors?

  • What opportunities are there for Scenario Planning and Risk Measurement?

  • TCFD Disclosures requirements – Practical Issues for Trustees to consider now.  

Key Speakers so far:





​Until it is possible to hold physical events, we are temporarily holding all our seminars as Virtual Forum Seminars.
