Climate Change Investment Solutions A Guide for Asset Owners

22.04.15

Climate Change Investment Solutions outlines a range of strategies and solutions investors can use to address climate change, including low carbon investment, managing and reducing carbon exposure in portfolios, and engagement, as investors around the world work to scale up their efforts to invest in clean energy and shift to lower carbon assets.

The guide covers four areas:

  • Strategic review – which looks at how you integrate climate change into investment beliefs and investment policies.
  • Strategic asset allocation – covering the measurement and managing of climate change risks and opportunities within existing asset allocation and through evolving asset allocation over time.
  • Mitigation investment actions – looks at options for reducing the carbon intensity of existing assets, along with opportunities to invest in low carbon, clean energy and energy efficient assets.
  • Adaptation investment actions – looks at options for reducing the vulnerability of existing assets to the physical impacts of climate change as well as building exposure to adaptation solutions.
