Climate Change -- The Risks and the Opportunities

Calvert has been an influential voice as we move along the road to Copenhagen

A robust Copenhagen agreement is critical to establishing clear long-term policies that will guide our economies, our companies, and our investments. As one of the largest fund families focused on sustainable and responsible investment, Calvert has held for some time that understanding corporate climate change risk and opportunity is vital to creating well-managed portfolios.

That said, the certainty that an international agreement will provide—in helping to set a sustainable global cost of carbon—will better allow investors to measure and manage this exposure. We believe our approach to carbon assessment can help create better portfolios by avoiding companies with poor carbon risk management, pushing our holdings to improve through advocacy, and actively selecting companies providing solutions to the climate challenge. Therefore, as investors we urge global leaders to come together around a strong climate change agreement and "Seal the Deal."
