I am very happy to be given the opportunity to offer some introductory words for this special issue of our Quarterly Sustainable Newsletter. This issue has a special focus on the COP26 summit and wraps up some key-highlights of the articles our experts have been publishing over the past weeks, both in the pan-European press and on our social network.
As you know, COP26 has been met with a lot of criticism as pledges have no hard commitments. However, climate finance ambitions are real. The investment community took center stage with the GFANZ (Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net-Zero) and took climate commitments from asset owners representing about 110 trillion EUR of financial assets.
As CEO, I assure that this and future COPs will impact and guide DPAM’s climate and investment strategy, as we consider it our fiduciary and societal duty to do so.
In this context, it is also my pleasure to share with you that -as an emanation of DPAM’s strong ambitions in the matter- an assessment trajectory has been initiated by our TCFD Steering Committee to evaluate the impact of zero-targeting on investment decisions and -universe. A broad range of feasibility studies is ongoing. The outcome of the full exercise is expected in the first quarter of 2022.
The preliminary results will be published in our TCFD 2021 report and confirm DPAM’s ambitions to address climate change challenges.
Enjoy the reading.
