Climate crisis and ethical investment choices
Held in Glasgow in November – COP26 – the United Nation’s 26th Conference of the Parties is
recognised as the most important climate change event since the 2015 Paris Agreement. In working together to tackle the climate crisis - the investment industry is stepping up with ethical investment choices.
Investment industry – a part to play
Launched last December, the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative has grown to over 120 investors, managing $43trn in assets – all committed to supporting the net zero goal and investing aligned
with net zero emissions. COP provides an opportunity for investors to consider how they can develop solutions to climate issues and offer ethical investment choices.
Commenting on the popularity of the initiative, Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change CEO, Stephanie Pfeifer, commented, “In just six months, nearly half of the global asset management sector
has committed to achieving net zero emissions with their clients across the funds they manage. This marks a fundamental tipping point across the investment sector and a significant boost in efforts to tackle climate change and decarbonise the global economy. There’s a lot more to achieve, but the sector is increasingly on a path to a net zero future.”
