2018 Global Investor Statement to Governments on Climate Change

09.12.18

Investors are a key influence on policymakers and, therefore, policy engagement by long-term investors is a necessary extension of these investors’ responsibilities and fiduciary duties to their beneficiaries.

At COP24 in Katowice, Poland in December 2018, IIGCC and other investor organisations collaborating to deliver the Investor Agenda, issued the 2018 GIS. Endorsed by a record 420 investors managing over US $32 trillion, it calls on world governments to:

• Achieve the Paris Agreement’s goals

• Accelerate private sector investment into the low carbon transition

• Commit to improve climate-related financial reporting

The statement was initially launched in June ahead of the G7 Summit, and show-cased with an updated list of signatories at the Global Climate Action Summit in September.

The Investor Agenda partner organisations have also released a briefing paper outlining the key asks in the statement.
