Environmental Costs Q and A

Start Date:23 Jun 11 

Time: 8.45am – 9.45am (breakfast served from 8.15)

Chancery Court Renaissance Hotel, London, UK

Trucost and UN PRI are hosting a breakfast briefing to explain why environmental costs matter to investors - and how investors can identify and manage related risk and opportunity in practice.

Research by Trucost for the UN PRI found that >50% of company earnings could be at risk from environmental costs in an equity portfolio weighted according to the MSCI All Country World Index. Investors can act to reduce companies' environmental costs in order to maintain natural capital and returns across portfolios.

This event will incorporate a presentation of the research findings, including:

The cost of environmental damage caused by the world's largest companies
How environmental costs could reduce earnings
How performance varies between companies and sectors

The agenda will also look at how investors can:

Understand the impacts and dependence of investee companies on natural resources
Identify and managing investment risk and opportunity
How can the PRI help
