The stakes have never been higher. No corner of the globe is immune from the devastating consequences of climate change. The urgent threat of global warming demands bold collective action. As asset managers and investors, we still have the power to change the world by helping to shift trillions of dollars towards climate-friendly investments.

Lyxor ETF’s Climate Investing Conference was held on 21 October 2021 and brought together industry leaders to examine the physical and transition risks of climate change to your portfolios and explore potential solutions to mitigate these risks.
