Climate: Investors take action #2

Climate finance

Publication :June 2015

The Research Centre of Novethic monitors the evolution of the mobilisation of investors on climate change over the whole 2015 year, and launches today the first actualisation of its study released on February 2015.

The trend is gaining momentum since more than 200 additional investors publicly disclosed commitments to integrate climate risk into their investment and management practices.
The two main actions implemented are, for more than a third of the sample, financing green activities with environmental benefits, and shareholder engagement with oil companies or very carbon-intensive companies. Divestment from the 200 world companies with the highest emissions comes next, under the pressure of NGO campaigns and student protests for universities foundations.
