Panel Discussion: Impactful solutions for combatting climate change, e.g. engagement, mandate design, climate solutions, longevity risk

This session answers questions such as: Are DC schemes able to properly manage this risk within the charge cap? Is engagement, divestment or investment in climate solutions the best way to tackle this? Does all of this make active management more or less attractive? This generates an engaging debate and discussion on these topics.
