Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance, an introduction

The Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance (NZAOA), initiated by the UN, is an ambitious group of asset owners. The alliance has made a public commitment to transform investment portfolios to reach Net-Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The alliance will strengthen with new asset owners in the coming year and bolster its message at COP26 in Glasgow.

This webinar was specifically intended for employees of banks, insurance companies and pension funds – and their asset managers – with the aim of providing information about this new alliance and initiating discussions with the current signatories. VBDO and WWF-NL work together to bring this alliance to the attention of Dutch investors.
