Global Investor Coalition on Climate Change

Global Investor Coalition on Climate Change
The four regional climate change investor groups IIGCC (Europe), Ceres (North America), IGCC (Australia & New Zealand) and AIGCC (Asia) have formed a global coalition. The coalition conducts shared initiatives on climate policy, international agreements and international projects of common interest. Domestic policy positions and services to members remain the purview of the regional member groups. Called the Global Investor Coalition on Climate Change, the coalition provides a global platform for dialogue between and amongst investors and governments on international policy and investment practice related to climate change.

The Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) was formed in the UK in 2003. It is a collaboration between pension funds and other institutional investors to:
1) Further increase understanding of the implications of climate change for companies 2) Better assess the implications for the investments we hold and to enable us to act, in line with our fiduciary duties; and to manage any risks and opportunities identified.
