The Updated 2021 Global Investor Statement to Governments on the Climate Crisis
587 investors managing $46 trillion in assets urge governments to undertake five priority actions to accelerate climate investment before COP26.
Signatories to the 2021 Global Investor Statement to Governments on the Climate Crisis are issuing the strongest-ever unified call from investors for governments to raise their climate ambition and implement meaningful policies — including mandatory climate risk disclosure, strengthened national commitments, ending fossil fuel subsidies and phasing out thermal coal — or risk missing out on the enormous investment opportunities in tackling the climate crisis.
Investor signatories to the statement are calling on all governments to undertake five priority actions before the 26th United Nations Climate Conference in Glasgow in November (COP26):
Strengthen their NDCs for 2030 before COP26
Commit to a domestic mid-century, net-zero emissions target
Implement domestic policies to deliver these targets
Ensure COVID-19 economic recovery plans support the transition
Commit to implementing mandatory climate risk disclosure requirements
