Abstract

In summary, the thesis describes a portfolio-focused approach to carbon emissions and strategic asset management, linking the two portfolios as one representation of the institutional footprint, and then expanding that concept to acknowledge the relationships which exist between institutional portfolios, and the consequent benefit for institutions and practitioners in adopting a portfolio-minded approach in order to maximise the contribution to the organisations' strategic goals.
