IIGCC’s Net Zero Investment Framework – launched in August 2020 for consultation – provides the first-ever practical blueprint for investors to maximise the contribution they make in tackling climate change and achieving net zero emissions globally by 2050.
The Framework, which is a draft for consultation, is open for feedback until 25 September 2020 (now closed).
It has been developed with over 70 global investors, representing more than $16 trillion in assets, through Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (seeherefor a full list of contributors). It aims to provide a comprehensive set of recommended actions, metrics and methodologies, which following finalisation, will seek to enable both asset owners and asset managers to effectively become ‘net zero investors’.
Thissupporting presentationalso helps provide additional context on the Framework, which is intended to be adopted and implemented by investors following its finalisation.
The Framework is the first output of IIGCC’sParis Aligned Investment Initiative,which aims to explore how investors can align their portfolios to the goals of the Paris Agreement.
