As a responsible steward of our members' capital, OPTrust has been working to expand our understanding and spark innovative thinking on the issue of climate change.
With its 2017 Funded Status Report, issued earlier this year, OPTrust became one of the first pension plans to report in accordance with the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). This is just the beginning of exploring the type of tools that are required to help us determine the resilience of OPTrust’s existing portfolio.
CLIMATE CHANGE ACTION PLAN
Ensuring that OPTrust's portfolio remains resilient and agile in meeting the challenges of climate change risk is an integral part of our investment mandate in defining a long-term strategy for the fund.
OPTrust’s Climate Change Action Plan (C-Cap) sets out broad actions that we believe will get us there. It defines a clear path forward — aligned with our risk conscious approach to pension management.
CLIMATE CHANGE: DELIVERING ON DISCLOSURE
Climate Change: Delivering on Disclosure details the fund's approach to navigating the complexities of climate change with respect to institutional investing and includes a call for collaboration in the development of standardized measures for carbon disclosure.
