Recorded Event - May 14, 2020
3:00-4:30 p.m. ET

The current pandemic highlights how a global crisis can fundamentally impact our lives and our financial security. It’s important during this time not to lose sight of the impact of climate change on our social and economic security. Pension trustees have a fiduciary obligation to pension plan members and beneficiaries to act in their best interests in making investment decisions. In fulfilling their obligations, pension trustees and their investment managers must identify and address climate-related financial risk. Join us as we discuss the state of the law on fiduciary obligation and pension funds and offer practical steps that pension trustees can take to ensure effective climate governance.
