IIGCC is a leading global investor membership body and the largest one focusing specifically on climate change. Our members, mainly asset owners and asset managers, include many of the biggest names in the sector, alongside more specialist investors and select financial service providers.

Slide Environmental, social and governance considerations sit at the heart of our business. In putting the investor perspective on climate change on the European and global agenda, IIGCC has been a pioneer in the sustainable finance space for many years. Being able to contribute as a member in continuing to move the sector forward is an important way for BNP Paribas Asset Management to demonstrate that we put our values into practice. Frederic Janbon - CEO, BNP Paribas Asset Management Slide Climate change is the biggest challenge the world currently faces, affecting all countries and sectors of the global economy. It is vital that investors, as stewards of global capital, play a leading role in supporting the transition to a low-emission and climate-resilient future. We support IIGCC’s efforts in driving this crucial agenda forward and encourage all investors to ensure they are actively contributing to the transformation we need to achieve. Patricia Espinosa - Executive Secretary, UN Climate Change Slide For Elo, IIGCC membership enhances our ability to analyse climate risk as well as strengthen our engagement with companies and policy-makers. Given IIGCC’s members consist of market leaders on sustainable investment, there is also mutual benefit in sharing new ideas and collaborating on such a vital topic. Hanna Hiidenpalo - CIO, Elo Slide 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 Slide Addressing climate change with responsible investment goes hand in hand with good financial performance for us. As a meeting point for leading investors, IIGCC enables participants to engage with companies and policy-makers to debate and influence how we invest for a prosperous, low-carbon future. Peter Branner - CIO, APG Asset Management Slide We are members of IIGCC because it is recognised as a leading organisation for expertise and actions supporting the integration of climate change into decision making. Informed IIGCC engagement work also complements other initiatives helping investors drive the transition to a low carbon economy, like the Transition Pathway Initiative. Emma Howard Boyd - Chair of the Environment Agency Pension Fund Investment Committee and Chair of the Environment Agency Slide As a board member of the two largest U.S. public pension funds, I value IIGCC’s work in organising European investors to engage with their portfolio companies on the urgent need for climate risk disclosure. With the powerful collaboration of the Climate Action 100+ initiative, investors can gain valuable insight into how well companies have aligned their business strategies to meet the 2-degrees goal.
