Newton net zero seminar | Wednesday 9 November 2022

We will help you understand why the need to decarbonise is so urgent and how you can be a part of creating real-world change.

If we are to collectively hit the globally pledged net-zero targets, there will need to be an extraordinary and global effort, and asset managers will have a crucial role to play in the transition. At our seminar, we will dive into the multiple facets of net zero. We will address how to define the right approach to achieving net-zero targets, how to engage for real-world decarbonisation, what this means for your organisation’s investments, and the investment transition story.

Our CEO, Euan Munro, and the institutional team look forward to welcoming you to the event.
