Investors around the world are excited about the low carbon economy and have organised themselves to collaborate – and to remind governments to do their bit.
Several climate change investor networks and groups have been founded to represent influential organisations such as banks, pension funds, insurance companies, hedge funds – the list goes on.
Follow these four groups on Twitter, and you’ll always be the first to hear about the latest developments!
1. Europe’s Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change
Europe’s Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC), headquartered in London, represents more than 120 European investors with a combined €13 trillion in assets.
The group has been calling on the EU to be “bold in its ambition,” and for its member states to ratify the Paris Agreement on climate change as soon as possible – or risk falling behind while the rest of the world moves full-speed ahead.
