Climate change

Making meaningful progress in the global fight against climate change

Climate change will affect everyone. It will have significant social, environmental and economic impacts on all continents and in almost all communities. Some of these can already be observed. Many other consequences will appear or worsen in the coming years and decades.

Because climate change poses a serious risk to the assets and businesses they invest in, long-term investors have a keen interest in acting to limit or mitigate its effects. Long-term investors are also well positioned to invest and support the businesses and technologies that will accelerate the world’s transition to a sustainable, low-carbon economy.

As part of the climate change initiative, ILN members are working to build on existing guidance and best practices to expand the adoption of uniform and comparable climate-related disclosures under the
Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (FSB-TCFD) framework.

Published in September 2019, TCFD Implementation, Practical Insights and Perspectives from Behind the Scenes for Institutional Investors is intended to assist asset owners and fund managers in making better choices to define their climate change strategies and disclosures.

In September 2020, the ILN published Climate Change Mitigation and your portfolio: Practical Tools for Investors. This report provides detailed guidance for investors on strengthening climate-related disclosures, focused on decarbonization scenarios in line with the Paris Agreement.

We believe enhanced disclosure will inform better decision making about the investment risks and opportunities stemming from climate change. The impacts of such decisions can be significant.
