Summary

Ahead of a meeting of G7 Finance Ministers in Dresden, Germany, 120 investor CEOs from around the world managing funds worth more than $12 trillion have written an open letter to finance ministers urging them to support the inclusion of a long-term emissions reduction goal in the international climate agreement due to be sealed in Paris in December.

This is the first time a global coalition of investors has called for a long-term emissions reduction goal to be included in the Paris agreement. In the letter the 120 CEOs also call on finance ministers to support the submission of short to medium-term national emissions pledges and country level action plans.
