IIGCC produces regular publications in order to help communicate investor views on climate change to policy makers, companies and other stakeholders, as well as investor guides. Messages are developed in consultation with members through IIGCC’s programmes and are used to support individual and collective engagement on climate risk and climate policy.

Communications to and engagement with companies indicate the key climate change-related practices that investors expect companies to pursue, based on an understanding of best practice management of climate change. Corporate disclosure frameworks provide sector-specific reporting guidelines for companies which will make it easier for investors to assess and compare the risks and opportunities posed by climate change and climate policy to individual companies.

Investor guides are aimed at creating greater understanding of the risks and opportunities posed by climate change and climate policy for different asset classes, including public equities, private equity and real estate.
