How to put your portfolio on a path to Net Zero

Lyxor ETF Climate Investing conference – 01/12/2021

Severe changes to our climate are all but locked in unless we cut carbon emissions drastically. Governments must lead but today’s investors have the tools, and the capital, to make a significant difference. Thankfully, there’s never been a better time to invest it in our planet.

On 01/12/2021, Lyxor ETF, in partnership with les Echos, will gather a panel of experts in order to take an in-depth look at climate investing. How do climate risks impact investors’ portfolios? Are earnings at risk? How do we get portfolios on a path to Net Zero 2050 and what are the solutions available to reduce portfolios’ carbon footprint and reduce financial risks?
