The purpose of the agenda
The Investor Agenda has been developed for the global investor community to accelerate and scale up the actions that are critical to tackling climate change and achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement.
An overview of the agenda
Investors, consistent with their fiduciary duties to their clients and beneficiaries, are encouraged to act in one or more of the following four areas:
A comprehensive agenda for the global investor community
The Investor Agenda provides comprehensive guidance for investors to transition the world’s financial capital to low-carbon opportunities, and a mechanism to report on their progress.
It brings together and promotes the key actions and initiatives that investors around the world are taking to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement, manage the risks of climate change, and build a low-carbon economy.
Developed by seven organizations
The Investor Agenda has been developed by seven partner organizations: Asia Investor Group on Climate Change, CDP, Ceres, Investor Group on Climate Change, Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change, Principles for Responsible Investment and UNEP Finance Initiative. These organizations intend to produce an annual report on the actions that investors have taken and on the outcomes that have been achieved.Find out more
