MD Pensions & Climate Risk: The Road to Net Zero Webinar

October 6 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

Join our panel of distinguished speakers to discuss the state of play for pension fund decarbonization in Maryland, and how Maryland’s pension system can align itself with the state’s 2045 net zero emissions goal.

Recognizing that climate risk is investment risk, Maryland enacted legislation (SB 566 and HB 0740) in 2022 that requires the State Retirement and Pension System (SRPS) to assess climate risk across certain parts of its investment portfolio, and identify investment opportunities in renewable energy technologies.

This bill is a positive move toward decarbonizing the SRPS and reducing climate risk for retirees, but more work is needed to fully decarbonize its portfolio. Join us as we talk about next steps!

Speakers will include former U.S. Dep. Sec. of the Treasury Sarah Bloom Raskin and Director of Financial Analysis for IEEFA Tom Sanzillo.
