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):

  1. Strengthen their NDCs for 2030 before COP26

  2. Commit to a domestic mid-century, net-zero emissions target

  3. Implement domestic policies to deliver these targets

  4. Ensure COVID-19 economic recovery plans support the transition

  5. Commit to implementing mandatory climate risk disclosure requirements
