IGCC Climate Awards

IGCC 2019 Climate Awards


Investors are a key part of global efforts to tackle climate change. While momentum across the industry is growing, there are a few select organisations now implementing transformational solutions to facilitate the transition to net zero emissions or manage physical risks and resilience.

We also know that there are a number of outstanding individuals working tirelessly to drive real change, either within their organisation or across the sector.

The IGCC Climate Awards, launched for the first time in 2019, seeks to spotlight the work of Australian and New Zealand asset owners, fund managers, investors and individuals delivering outstanding outcomes on climate change.
