In the most ambitious statement yet, as investors, we are calling on governments, ahead of COP 27 to urgently implement the policy actions needed to address the climate crisis and accelerate the Net Zero Transition. We fully agree that effective policies, in line with limiting warming to no more than 1.5 C, are essential to scaling up the private capital flows needed for a climate resilient net zero transition.
The full asks of the Global Investor Statement can be found attached.
Ethical Partners Funds Management looks forward to continuing our policy advocacy on these issues, both through our active memberships of the Principles for Responsible Investment & the Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC), two of the founding partners of the Investor Agenda, and through our own direct advocacy activities within the Australian context’.
Ethical Partners are pleased to see Australia take the next steps to implement mandatory climate reporting with the release of draft climate standards, which we provided feedback on.
Ethical Partners have continuously called for the provision of high quality, comparable data on company’s climate governance and carbon metrics, which we believe is imperative for investors to fulfil the potential of responsible investment.
Ethical Partners have been proud to have been active supporters of the TNFD Forum over the past few years, and to provide regular feedback on the development of the official TNFD recommendations, which were launched in December, as well as to be active members of the RIAA Natural Capital Working Group.
