The 2014 Global Investor Statement on Climate Change has been signed by over 360 investors with more than $24 trillion in assets under management. It represents an important contribution by the global investment community to supporting the UN Climate Summit and encouraging strong domestic and international climate and clean energy policies. The Statement sets out steps that institutional investors (both asset owners and asset managers) can take to address climate change, and calls on governments to support a new global agreement on climate change by 2015, in addition to national and regional policy measures.
We call on policy makers to consider the recommendations in the 2014 Global Investor Statement on Climate Change and we look forward to a dialogue about the policy frameworks needed to catalyze investment in the clean energy, low-carbon future.
The Statement was drafted through a collaboration of six organizations: the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC - Europe), the Asia Investor Group on Climate Change (AIGCC), the Ceres Investor Network on Climate Risk (INCR), the Investor Group on Climate Change Australia/New Zealand (IGCC), the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), and the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
