Climate Action 100+ is a five-year initiative led by investors to engage systemically important greenhouse gas emitters and other companies across the global economy that have significant opportunities to drive the clean energy transition and help achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement. Investors are calling on companies to improve governance on climate change, curb emissions and strengthen climate-related financial disclosures.
Investor representatives from AustralianSuper, California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS), HSBC Global Asset Management, Ircantec and Manulife Asset Management have helped to lead the design and development of Climate Action 100+. The initiative is coordinated 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 on the successful investor engagement programmes coordinated by the partner organisations over a number of years.
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, AustralianSuper
Anne Simpson, Investment Director of Sustainability, CalPERS
Mindy Lubber, CEO and President, Ceres
Emma Herd, CEO, Investor Group on Climate Change
