Your statement of commitment
By signing IGCC’s Statement of Commitment, members endorse the mission of the IGCC, which is that we recognise that climate change will impact our investments, that there is an economic transition underway and it is accelerating. We support a response that is founded in a science-based assessment of the carbon constraints required to avoid dangerous climate change. We acknowledge that investors are key agents in facilitating an efficient transition.
IGCC will help investors in facilitating this transition, recognising that as stewards of capital we have a positive role to play in managing long term risks and ensuring sustainable returns.
We ask members to contribute to the IGCC mission by:
- Participating in and attending IGCC meetings
- Participating on a committee and supporting activities
- Demonstrating progress incorporating the risks and opportunities associated with climate change into investment decisions or advice as appropriate, and into business operations
- Assisting to raise awareness of the risks and opportunities associated with climate change in the investment industry, corporate, government and community sectors; and
- Encouraging other organisations within the broader investment industry to join the IGCC and support IGCC activities.
