About the event

Series Overview

Recently, we have heard a lot about using scenario analysis in investment decision making, particularly in light of the climate risk that many investors face. Additionally, we are hearing a lot these days about company net-zero strategies. To address these gaps, the Sustainability Ecosystem at Concordia University, in collaboration with Ceres and Manulife Investment Management, are hosting a series of webinars on using scenario planning as a tool in the sustainable finance investment toolkit.  

This learning lab series will take you on a journey to understanding the creation and application of Climate Scenario Analysis.
