Institutional investors’ expectations of corporate climate risk management

11.01.12

The Investor Expectations outlines seven steps investors expect companies to take to minimise the risks and maximise the opportunities presented by climate change and climate policy. The seven steps are in the areas of governance, strategy, goals, implementation, measurement, disclosure and public policy. The expectations are of particular importance for companies in carbon-intensive sectors, and those who have not have adopted carbon reduction targets or a systematic approach to managing climate change risks.

This document was developed by leading investors and details their expectations of how companies should approach responding to climate change. The Investor Expectations provides a unified global investor voice on the issue for the first time, in response to concerns about the impact of climate change on their investments. The Investor Expectations was co-ordinated by three leading investor groups on climate change, the European Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC), the US-based Investor Network on Climate Risk (INCR), and the Investors Group on Climate Change (IGCC) in Australia and New Zealand.
