IIGCC provides a unique forum for investors on climate and energy issues. IIGCC members share why they value their participation in the initiative.
“In the current investment climate we have a fiduciary responsibility to seek out attractive infrastructure assets, including renewables, that yield an attractive risk-adjusted return and that at the same time will support the transition towards a low-carbon economy. Collaboration on climate change policy with other pension funds through IIGCC is an effective way to communicate pension funds’ needs for regulatory clarity and stability as well as assets yielding effective returns.” -Torben Möger Pedersen, CEO PensionDanmark
“At Generation we think deeply about climate risk and ways in which sustainability measures could affect long-term value creation. As many of IIGCC’s members are leaders in the field, it is mutually advantageous to collaborate and share knowledge in this area to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable form of capitalism.” -David Blood, President and co-founder, Generation Investment Management
“To PGGM, institutional investors have a critical role to play in supporting the move to a low carbon economy and IIGCC provides a crucially important platform for investors to engage collectively with policymakers to enable investors to play that role.” -Marcel Jeucken, Managing Director Responsible Investment, PGGM
“Membership of IIGCC has helped us at USS Investment Management to refine our understanding, our ideas and our internal practices on climate change.”-David Russell, Co-Head of Responsible Investment, USS Investment Management Institutional Investors
