Transition to a low-carbon economy
CalSTRS recognizes that climate change presents a material and existential risk to society and the economy. We are committed to influencing public policies, engaging with companies and promoting an orderly transition to a low-carbon economy through investments.
Our Low-Carbon Transition Work Plan seeks to reduce climate-related risk and identify opportunities to invest in climate-related solutions while also benefiting our members—California’s public school educators.
The work plan includes five objectives:
- Build board and staff consensus on portfolio impacts.
- Evaluate the transition readiness of portfolios by asset class.
- Expand investments in new climate-related solutions.
- Enhance stewardship activities.
- Communicate strategies.
