  • 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?
