IIGCC produces regular publications in order to help communicate investor views on climate change to policy makers, companies and other stakeholders, as well as investor guides. Messages are developed in consultation with members through IIGCC’s programmes and are used to support individual and collective engagement on climate risk and climate policy.
European climate and energy policy

Statements are aimed at providing the investor view on policy frameworks and policies that are consistent with long-term investment objectives and will facilitate the move to a low carbon economy. Positions are developed by IIGCC and its members and communicated through a variety of means, including in-person meetings with policymakers and other experts.
Global climate policy
24 documents available
As part of its collaboration with other regional investor networks, now through the Global Investor Coalition on Climate Change, investor statements are developed to leverage collective influence of investors on an international scale.

Investor guides are aimed at creating greater understanding of the risks and opportunities posed by climate change and climate policy for different asset classes, including public equities, private equity and real estate. They provide guidance on how these factors might be considered by pension funds when selecting or evaluating their investment managers and by investment managers in their investment practices or decision-making or in reporting to their clients.

Communications to companies indicate the key climate change-related practices that investors expect companies to undertake based on an understanding of best practice management of climate change.

Drawing on the expertise of real estate professionals in IIGCC’s Property programme, these publications describe risks and opportunities climate changes poses to this asset class.
