Abstract

The growing debate about fossil fuel divestment is a signal that investors are slowly waking up to this threat, but long-term investors must do much more if they are to avoid material damage to the value of their investments.

Keywords: Climate Change, Global Warming, Emissions, Fossil Fuels, Divestment, Pension Fund, Systemic Risk
