KraneShares’ Future of Green ETFs Summit:
Thursday, March 25, 2021
13:00 - 17:00 GMT

Investors can utilize ETFs and index funds to implement efficient ESG investment strategies now that scoring methodologies are widely established. However, the resulting impact for society and the returns generated from ESG criteria application can vary significantly between markets. This divergence is especially evident in China, where ESG has had a significant performance-boosting effect that may not occur in other markets. It is also apparent in the global carbon allowance market, where the climate impact from investment can be readily quantified and standardized.

This conference will explore the different approaches investors from the US, Europe, and Asia take toward ESG considerations in their portfolios. We will hear from companies at the forefront of renewable energy and pollution reduction in China and experts on sustainable investment strategies. Nobel Laureate and Economist Robert Engle will deliver the keynote on how the global carbon allowance market offers a direct opportunity to invest in pollution reduction with significant upside potential.
