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 with the aim of keeping average global temperature rise to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius.
An overview of the agenda
The Investor Agenda encourages investors to set science-based portfolio emissions reduction targets that are consistent with achieving global net-zero emissions by 2050 or sooner, with credible intermediate targets. The Investor Agenda provides investors with a set of actions they can take in four key focus areas to meet these science-based portfolio emissions reduction targets and align with the goals of the Paris Agreement…
A comprehensive agenda for the global investor community
The Investor Agenda is a collaborative initiative that seeks to speed the transition to a net-zero emissions economy by 2050 or sooner. This includes elevating the profile of existing investor actions and initiatives on climate change, and amplifying investor voices calling for government implementation of the Paris Agreement.
It enables policymakers, businesses and other stakeholders to track the breadth and depth of investor commitments to take action on climate-related risks and opportunities and align their portfolios with the Paris Agreement by setting portfolio emissions reduction targets. Each investor is encouraged to issue an Investor Climate Action Plan to specifically lay out their plan of actions to achieve their emissions reduction targets and rapidly accelerate their actions to achieve global net-zero emissions by 2050 or sooner.
