Impressions of the Berlin Investment Forum 2015

 

To what extent does climate change threaten global financial stability? And how can investors contribute substantially to the realization of global climate targets?

On June 15, 2015, Tagesspiegel hosted the “Berlin Investment Forum – Climate Change and Global Asset Allocation” together with its partners Wermuth Asset Management, European Climate Foundation, Germanwatch and responsAbility. Leading international academics like Professor Hans Joachim Schellnhuber CBE and Professor Klaus Töpfer, German Secretary of State Rainer Baake, analysts Nick Robins and Mark Campanale, investment manager Jochen Wermuth and international investors discussed issues related to climate change, a possible carbon bubble and their impact on global finance and investments. The 175 participants included decision-makers from the political and business communities as well as investors, including more than 40 representatives of international family offices who have opted for impact investing and/or divest-invest strategies.

The conference marked the premiere of a new Tagesspiegel projects series on finance, climate and impact investment topics.
