Investor Expectations on Corporate Climate Risk Management
The Investor Expectations guides set a common agenda to further stimulate and facilitate more meaningful discussions of climate risk by a larger number of investors and high-carbon emitting companies.
Investor Expectations go beyond disclosure and governance to probe deeper into company views on strategy in a 2 degree scenario, implementation of targets and on climate policy. This builds on the dialogue of the Carbon Asset Risk (CAR) Initiative, through which 75 investors managing more than $3 trillion in assets engaged with 45 of the world’s largest fossil fuel companies, asking them to assess how business plans fare in a low-carbon future and address possible risk of stranded assets. IIGCC members meet regularly to share updates on company engagements, coordinate messages for collaborative meetings with companies, and develop questions for further sectoral Investor Expectations documents.
