The IIGCC Net Zero Investment Framework | Clare Foster, Daisy Streatfeild and Dewi Dylander

Can asset owners save the world? In this initiative spotlight from Ethical Finance 2021, we take a look at the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC)’s Net Zero Investment Framework. With moderator Clare Foster of Shepherd and Wedderburn, Daisy Streatfeild of the IIGCC and Dewi Dylander of Denmark’s PKA, the session explores how a small group of asset owners, including public pension funds, got together to explore what they could do to align their portfolios with the Paris Agreement.

Despite its small beginnings, the Net Zero Investment Framework has grown rapidly as more and more investors realise the importance of taking these actions. The participants explain how this important tool can be used to understand portfolio’s impacts on climate, and begin to transform them, investing in both climate transitions and climate resilience.
