    CORRECTED-Funds managing $2 trillion urge cement makers to act on climate impact

    European funds managing $2 trillion in assets called on cement companies to slash their greenhouse gas emissions on Monday, warning that a failure to do so could put their business models at risk. With the extreme weather and natural disasters associated with climate change intensifying around the world, some asset managers are ramping up engagement with heavy polluters to demand a faster transition to a cleaner economy. “The cement sector needs to dramatically reduce the contribution it makes to climate change," said Stephanie Pfeifer, chief executive of the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change, which has more than 170 members, mainly European pension funds and asset managers.

    Blackstone Nears Deal for CRH Europe Distribution Arm

    (Bloomberg) -- CRH Plc, which counts activist investor Cevian Capital as an investor, agreed to sell its European plumbing and heating distribution business to Blackstone Group Inc. for 1.64 billion euros ($1.9 billion) in cash to create a more focused building-materials group.The business supplying professional builders and home renovators generated sales of 3.7 billion euros and earnings of 155 million euros last year, Dublin-based CRH said in a statement on Tuesday. Bloomberg reported late Monday a deal with the U.S. private equity firm was imminent.The sale marks CRH’s exit from distribution as Chief Executive Officer Albert Manifold steers the company toward higher growth markets including cement. As part of a more sweeping overhaul to generate cash for acquisitions, the CEO spent the “last several months” exploring options for the business, concluding that a sale would generate the most value for shareholders, according to the company.Blackstone beat out other bidders, including Bain Capital and Lone Star Funds, according to people with knowledge of the matter. The distribution business also sells products such as roof tiles and flooring.Shares of CRH gained 0.8% to 29.74 euros as of 8:13 a.m. in Dublin. The transaction will be “well received given the clean sale and the attractive price,” Davy analyst Robert Gardiner wrote in an investor note.(Updates with analyst and share price in last paragraph.)\--With assistance from Jan-Henrik Förster and Dinesh Nair.To contact the reporters on this story: Aaron Kirchfeld in London at akirchfeld@bloomberg.net;Sarah Syed in London at ssyed35@bloomberg.net;Andrew Noël in London at anoel@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Aaron Kirchfeld at akirchfeld@bloomberg.net, Tara PatelFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    The FTSE 100 edged 0.1 percent lower, while the more domestically-focused FTSE 250, which benefits from a strong pound, was up 0.4 percent. Sterling held steady after strong comments on Brexit from European Council President Donald Tusk and as investors mulled a report that UK cabinet ministers had discussed plans that would potentially postpone Britain's exit from the bloc to May 24. The gains in sterling were enough to drag blue-chip exporter stocks such as Diageo, British American Tobacco and Reckitt Benckiser lower.
