The world economy is on a highly complex, multi-decade transition to one that produces fewer greenhouse gases and is adapted to the impacts of a changing climate.
To deliver on our mandate over the long term, OPTrust is committed to building a portfolio that addresses the risks and seizes the opportunities presented by the global transition to a net-zero economy.
Our dedication to managing climate risk is a core piece of our long-standing Responsible Investing program. We endeavor to increasingly embed climate risks, alongside other material ESG factors, into the way we do business across the organization to ensure we rise to the challenge as investment best practices evolve in the decades ahead.
We recognize addressing plan sustainability requires addressing climate sustainability.
We must anticipate change and evolve.
We will find opportunities across transition pathways.
We are active owners and will engage with companies and in investor collaborations to address climate risks and opportunities.
We will be transparent to preserve the trust of our members and stakeholders.
Climate change is among the most complex, challenging issues of our time. To help us navigate through the uncertainty, we have developed a climate strategy that will enhance the fund's resiliency through this monumental transition.
We are committed to understanding the impacts of climate change on our portfolio and have embarked on several initiatives over the past few years to enrich our perspective on the risks and opportunities it presents.
