Climate Action 100+ is a five-year initiative led by investors to engage with the world’s largest corporate greenhouse gas emitters to curb emissions, strengthen climate-related financial disclosures and improve governance on climate change.

Investor representatives from Australian Super, California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS), HSBC Global Asset Management, Ircantec and Manulife Asset Management have helped to lead the design and development of the initiative.

Climate Action 100+ is supported and co-ordinated by five partner organisations: Asia Investor Group on Climate Change (AIGCC); Ceres; Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC); Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC); and Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). It builds upon the collaborative investor engagement pioneered since 2012 by the four organisations that together form the Global Investor Coalition on Climate Change. It also draws upon the leadership of PRI and its investor engagements across environmental, social and governance issues.

Climate Action 100+ is governed by a global Steering Committee made up of investors and lead executives from the coordinating partner organisations. Members of the Steering Committee include:

Rebecca Mikula-Wright, Director, AIGCC
Andrew Gray
, Senior Manager of Investments Governance, Australian Super
