We are the leading network for Australian and New Zealand investors to understand and respond to the risks and opportunities of climate change.

Our members manage more than $35 trillion globally.

Our members have more than $35 trillion in global AUM, and $5 trillion in local AUM.

They include our countries’ largest superannuation and retail funds, specialist investors and advisory groups, and their beneficiaries include more than 14.8 million Australians, and millions more New Zealanders.

We are a not-for-profit organisation.

Our work is funded by members’ fees, philanthropy, partnerships, and sponsorship from supporters who understand the power of capital to support climate action.

We are the parent of The Asia Investor Group on Climate Change.

We launched AIGCC, which operates across Asia under our governance structure and is therefore within IGCC’s legal entity and constitution.

AIGCC has its own members, board sub-committee, and activities, but we share a CEO and some executives, and leverage each others work and expertise.

We are the regional connection to global investor networks

We co-ordinate with peer networks via the Paris Aligned Investor Initiative, which comprises IGCC in Australia/New Zealand, AIGCC in Asia, the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change in Europe, and Ceres in North America.

We also run certain collaborative initiatives with global investor networks CDP, PRI and the UN Environment Program Finance Initiative as Investor Agenda.
