With climate change an investment imperative and an imminent reporting requirement, we believe UK pension schemes should look beyond assessing the current emissions intensity of assets and analyse their temperature trajectories – especially to learn how aligned they are with the 1.5-2°C limit set by the Paris Agreement. With this information, investors are better able to identify which companies are helping drive the transition to a net-zero carbon economy, avoid stranded assets and prove that their portfolios are aligned with the climate transition. To help schemes achieve these outcomes, we have developed a science-based, forward looking tool – Lombard Odier Portfolio Temperature Alignment – that has been independently reviewed by leading industry and academic institutions.
