Its primary objective is to ensure investors can decarbonise investment portfolios and increase investment in climate solutions, in a way that is consistent with a 1.5°C net zero emissions future.
An ‘investment strategy’ led approach, supported by concrete targets set at portfolio and asset level – combined with smart capital allocation, and engagement and advocacy activity – ensures investors can maximise their impact in driving real-world decarbonisation.
Four different asset classes – sovereign bonds, listed equities and corporate fixed income and real estate – are covered by the framework, with others to follow. Five investors will also be putting the framework to the test, by modelling its impact across performance of their real-word portfolios collectively valued at $1.3 trillion. The results of this analysis will be launched with the final framework, expected before the end of 2020.
