AIGCC CEO / CIO Roundtable

AIGCC convened the inaugural CEO/CIO Asset Owner Roundtable in September 2017. This forum is the flagship event for AIGCC, bringing asset owners from Asia and internationally together in a forum of peer to peer sharing of knowledge and information. This assists in providing guidance and information developed by global investor peers on the benefits of integrating climate change risks and opportunities into their investment policies and processes.

The aim of the event is to build on the knowledge developed in the previous years’ Roundtable, where the impact of climate risk for investors in Asia was discussed. It also aims to develop a deeper understanding of where climate implications can fit within ESG policy and management frameworks and how they could be applied for investors in the region.

Climate Action 100+

Climate Action 100+ was launched by five investor organisations in Paris at the One Planet Summit 12 December 2017, hosted by President Macron, with 225 investors with $26 trillion in assets under management. Climate Action 100+ is now backed by 296 investors with nearly $31 trillion in assets under management, mobilising across 29 countries.

This new five-year project harnesses the weight and influence of global investors to engage the world’s largest greenhouse gas emitting companies on climate action.


The Investor Agenda

The Investor Agenda calls on global investors to accelerate and scale up the actions that are critical to tackling climate change and achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement. It is a comprehensive agenda for investors to manage climate risks and capture low-carbon opportunities, and a mechanism to report on their progress in four key focus areas: Investment, Corporate Engagement, Investor Disclosure and Policy Advocacy.

The agenda has been developed by Asia Investor Group on Climate Change, CDP, Ceres, Investor Group on Climate Change, Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change, Principles for Responsible Investment and UNEP Finance Initiative.
