Robeco Presents: Decarbonization -in Fixed Income Portfolios
Insurers around the world are approaching sustainability both through their protection and investment products, and also via their own general account investments. The theme of decarbonizing the balance sheet is snowballing globally due to the increased regulatory and societal pressure on large institutions. This pairs with the fact that insurers are increasingly exposed to claims arising from climate change.

Join us as we address a number of questions:
• How are insurers adopting ESG in their investment portfolios?
• How can decarbonization be achieved in practical terms?
• What tools exist to implement carbon optimization across fixed income and equity portfolios?
• US and non-US insurer case studies
