The Asia Investor Group on Climate Change (AIGCC) aims to create awareness among Asia’s asset owners and financial institutions about the risks and opportunities associated with climate change and low carbon investing. With current members representing over $15 trillion in funds under management, AIGCC provides capacity for investors to collaborate on investment activity, credit analysis, risk management, engagement and policy.
With a strong focus on international engagement, AIGCC participates in international collaborations to engage with global and regional investor organisations, including the development of major projects to leverage opportunities for maximum impact on policy and corporate engagement for asset owners and financial institutions.
AIGCC develops resources for investors, such as tools and guides to address specific investor needs around integrating climate change into investment processes and portfolios. AIGCC also collaborates with global investor climate networks to develop new research. AIGCC publications aim to provide the investment community with applicable and relevant resources and tools to assist in the transition to low carbon economies in Asia.
Membership includes access to the AIGCC Action Agenda. The members of the working group can participate in:
- Global investor submissions and reports to provide input and perspective on behalf of Asia
- Sharing of relevant experience and insights to assist in identifying future focus areas for the development of resources for investors in the region
- Maintaining a peer to peer network through regular participation in the group
- International collaboration with access to projects and initiatives such as the Global Investor Coalition, Climate Action 100+ and The Investor Agenda.
