The mission of IIGCC’s Corporate programme is to deepen investor understanding of the nature of risks and opportunities faced by companies, as well as their strategies and performance in addressing them. There is also a special focus on company views on climate change policy.
Climate policy and the changing climate create substantial risks and opportunities for companies, who also have a central role to play in successful climate change mitigation and adaptation. The Investor Expectations: Oil and Gas Company Strategy aims to set a common agenda to further stimulate and facilitate more meaningful discussions of climate risk by a larger number of investors and oil and gas companies. This builds on 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.
 The CAR initiative is coordinated by Ceres and Carbon Tracker, with support from IIGCC and IGCC, which lead engagement with fossil fuel companies in Europe and Australia/New Zealand respectively.
