COP27: what to expect

From 6 to 18 November, Heads of State, ministers and negotiators, along with climate activists, mayors, civil society representatives and CEOs will meet in the Egyptian coastal city of Sharm el-Sheikh for the world’s largest annual gathering on climate action. COP27 will build on the outcomes of COP26 to deliver action on an array of issues critical to tackling the climate emergency – from urgently reducing greenhouse gas emissions, building resilience and adapting to the inevitable impacts of climate change, to delivering on the commitments to finance climate action in developing countries. Faced with a growing energy crisis, record greenhouse gas concentrations, and increasing extreme weather events, COP27 seeks renewed solidarity between countries, to deliver on the landmark Paris Agreement, for people and the planet. As COP27 fast approaches, we thought it would be an opportune time to reflect on some of the expected outcomes from the conference and the potential opportunities these might present for the themes and sub-themes within the TT Environmental Solutions Strategy’s investable universe.

Why invest in European Equities Long/Short now?

With European companies leading the structural shift to ESG investing and countries taking diverging paths out of lockdown, we feel the gap between winners and losers will be stark, giving long/short stock pickers the opportunity to generate meaningful levels of alpha.

Looking beyond low carbon to holistic environmental investing

The world is not on track to achieve the Paris Agreement temperature targets, and low carbon investing in isolation is unlikely to change this. The magnitude of the environmental crisis facing our planet requires that allocators take bold and creative action. In this paper we set out the case for supplementing a low carbon approach with an environmental solutions strategy, which we believe will grant investors access to the biggest structural growth opportunity of a generation.
