Action agenda

Working groups
IGCC operates through a number of working groups, where members help shape IGCC’s position on key issues and promote industry engagement across a number of investment and climate change practice areas.

Transition to Zero Carbon
The Transition to Zero Carbon Working Group focuses on developing investor solutions for facilitating the transition to a net zero emissions economy in Australia and New Zealand, and to track global progress.

Physical Risk & Resilience
The Physical Risk and Resilience Working Group is focused on developing solutions to enable investors to integrate physical risk and resilience into portfolio management, and drive more investment into adaptation solutions.

Policy & Advocacy
The Policy & Advocacy Working Group coordinates IGCC’s advocacy and government engagement activities in support of IGCC’s Policies for a Resilient Net Zero Emissions Economy and maintains oversight on the role that companies and industry associations play in delivering constructive climate change policy outcomes.

Transparency & Thought Leadership
The Transparency & Thought Leadership Working Group works across all areas of strategic focus set out in the IGCC Strategy. This group works to increase climate-related reporting and transparency and also coordinates major pieces of research and analysis for IGCC.

The Climate Action 100+ Australasian Engagement Group
IGCC coordinates investor participation in the global Climate Action 100+ project in Australia and New Zealand. The Climate Acion 100+ Australaisian Engagement Gorup is a forum for sharing tools and resources developed to facilitate company engagement activities and allows investor signatories share updates on engagement progress against the goals of the Climate Action 100+.

AIGCC
The Asia Investor Group on Climate Change (AIGCC) is an initiative to create awareness among Asia’s asset owners and financial institutions about the risks and opportunities associated with climate change and low carbon investing. AIGCC provides capacity for investors to share best practice and to collaborate on investment activity, credit analysis, risk management, engagement and policy.
