Climate Resilient Pensions: Lowering Risk, Lowering Emissions

As the climate crisis forces a change in how institutional asset owners evaluate climate risk, public and private pension funds must react. Panelists will discuss climate-related financial risk to pensions, and the need for pension boards - as long-term investors - to embrace a clearer understanding of that risk.

  • Moderator: Jina Penn-Tracy,  Centered Wealth
  • Lars Erik Mangset, KLP, Norway 
  • Dr. Ellen Quigley Univ. of Cambridge Centre for the Study of Existential Risk
  • Steven Feit, Center for International Environmental Law

This event is part of a series of Climate Week NYC presentations focused on diverse strategies for addressing climate-related financial risk in investments as the global economy moves toward a more just, and equitable low-carbon future.
