Who We Are

The Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC)

IGCC is a collaboration of Australian and New Zealand investors focusing on the impact that climate change has on the financial value of investments.

The IGCC represents institutional investors, with total funds under management of over $2 trillion, and others in the investment community interested in the impact of climate change on investments. The IGCC aims to encourage government policies and investment practices that address the risks and opportunities of climate change, for the ultimate benefit of superannuants and unit holders.

We aim to:

  • Raise awareness of the potential impacts, both positive and negative, resulting from climate change to the investment industry, corporate, government and community sectors;
  • Encourage best practice approaches to facilitate the inclusion of the impacts of climate change in investment analysis by the investment industry; and
  • Provide information to assist the investment industry to understand and incorporate climate change into the investment decision.

The Asia Investor Group on Climate Change is also a subsidiary of the IGCC, with staff both in Australia and in the region.

In 2016, IGCC helped to relaunch the Asia Investor Group on Climate Change (AIGCC).

AIGCC currently operates under the governance and as part of the structure of IGCC, while maintaining an independent member network.

We also collaborate with similar investor organisations on climate change in Europe (the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change), North America (Ceres) and Asia (Asia Investor Group on Climate Change) through the Global Investor Coalition on Climate Change.

IGCC’s strategy and governance includes:
