As investors address the systemic risk of climate change in their portfolios, an increasing number are taking action on deforestation as a major driver of climate change. Following last year’s devastating fires in the Amazon, 251 investors with $17.7 trillion in assets under management called on companies to eliminate deforestation from their operations and supply chains.

To support this groundswell of action, Ceres has partnered with leading investors to develop a new Investor Guide to Deforestation and Climate Change. The Guide provides investors with a framework to assess how deforestation exposes their portfolios to climate risk and key points to raise during company engagements. In this webinar, these investor partners will share key findings and discuss their climate and deforestation strategies.
