Science-based tools webinar series: The TPI Tool
Event Location : Online
Science-Based Tools for Financial Institutions
Given the urgent need to take effective climate action and the role of science in developing financial institutions’ transition pathways, FC4S developed a series of webinars to present available instruments that help address the challenges financial institutions face in developing their strategies and aligning their portfolios. This sequence of events aims to familiarize financial professionals with available tools and methodologies that help report, measure, and disclose aspects of sustainable finance strategies.
September 14– The TPI tool – the ‘go-to’ corporate climate action benchmark
The UNDP FC4S Network and Transition Pathway Initiative (TPI) invite financial professionals to learn about the TPI tool. It provides robust independent research to empower investors to assess their portfolio alignment with the Paris Agreement’s goals and drive real-world emission reductions through their actions. Its universe covers 479 companies across 16 sectors with a total market cap of USD 10 trillion. Moreover, it provides the Climate Action 100+ Benchmark to assess 167 of the most carbon-intensive and regionally significant companies. Its data has been embedded into the FTSE-TPI Climate Transition Index and is increasingly referenced by London Stock Exchange. TPI has acquired 124 supporters with a combined AUM of $45 trillion.
This global initiative, led by Asset Owners and supported by Asset Managers, Service Providers, and non-profits, assesses companies’ preparedness to transition to a low carbon economy, supporting efforts to address climate change and has published four State of Transition reports.
This webinar will be held in English at two different times, last one hour, and include a Q&A session to allow for direct interactions with the specialist.
