  • How can an approach to climate be reflected in asset allocation? How can you measure and monitor climate risks in your portfolio? What resources are needed to identify climate risks in your portfolio?
  • How do you report on the impacts of your engagement? Will this become more demanding going forward?
  • What are the portfolio implications of the decision to reach net zero emissions by 2050?
  • Push for greater transparency — what are some questions you should be asking investment managers about their climate risk assessment during the investment process?
  • What are the responsibilities of a fiduciary in portfolio fossil fuel divestment?
  • What investment initiatives are you implementing in public equities? Any allocations to climate solution-oriented public equity fundamental managers? If so, how have they performed?
  • Are green bonds worth the high fees? Is China, Europe, the U.S., or another region most attractive for this green investment?
  • How is the real estate industry managing risk and embracing the inevitable between flooding and climate hazards?
  • With increasing water-related risks, what will be the credit implications and the impact on credit ratings?
  • Where do you see the best opportunities in smart cities, green buildings, decarbonizing technologies, electric vehicles, water, renewable energy, battery storage, or other appealing sectors?
