IIGCC launches initiative to accelerate climate-related corporate engagement

The Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) has launched the Net Zero Engagement Initiative (NZEI), a new initiative to scale and accelerate climate-related corporate engagement. To date, 93 investors have agreed to participate in the initiative including Church of England Pensions Board, Schroders and PGGM.

By expanding the universe of companies engaged beyond the Climate Action 100+ focus list, including those across the demand side, the objective is to help investors align more of their portfolio with the goals of the Paris Agreement as set out by investor net-zero commitments, such as the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative and the Paris Aligned Asset Owners initiative.

Investors participating in NZEI will develop an appropriate engagement strategy for each company. For those identified as strategic priorities, this will include engagement ‘sprints’ featuring agile engagement focusing on key pools of companies. This approach is designed to tackle companies facing specific challenges and those with sector-wide barriers.
