Climate change risks have global impacts that affect multiple sectors and companies. On the other hand, climate change will also present new investment opportunities, such as innovative technologies.
We integrate climate change considerations across the investment cycle. It influences the opportunities we look for, our assessment and decision-making processes before acquiring an asset, and how we manage an asset once we own it.
See select examples of how we are leading and learning on climate change (PDF).
Having accurate and timely information from companies about how climate change impacts their business is essential for investors like Ontario Teachers’. We strongly encourage good reporting from the companies we invest in, and as such believe it is important for us to live up to the standards we ask by publishing our own Climate Change Report (PDF). This report provides detailed information about our approach to managing the risks and opportunities related to climate change and was written in accordance with the recommendations made by the Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD).
We will continue to refine our approach as our understanding of the interconnectedness of physical and transition risks associated with climate change continues to evolve, and more robust data and tools emerge.
