The United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), in collaboration with World Resource Institute’s Greenhouse Gas Protocol and the 2 Degree Investing Initiative, have released a final draft for discussion of their report “Climate Strategies and Metrics: Exploring Options for Institutional Investors”, at an event during Paris Climate Week.
The aim of the report is to inform institutional investors exploring to better align their portfolios with the low-carbon economy. In particular, the report serves as a valuable input to UNEP FI’s Portfolio Decarbonization Coalition given that it further clarifies and compares different types of decarbonization and the different metrics through which ‘decarbonization progress’ can be measured. The report will formally published later in the summer.
