Global Investor Statement on Climate Change Letter to governments – new signatory request

Asia Investor Group on Climate Change(AIGCC)の Rebecca より下記の案内をいただきました。ご関心ございましたら、締め切りが6月3日となっておりますのでご注意ください。

Dear colleague,

We are writing to give your organisation the opportunity to sign the Global Investor Statement to Governments on Climate Change https://theinvestoragenda.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/190304-GISGCC.pdf . The statement – supported last year by a record number of investors https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/dec/10/largest-ever-group-of-global-investors-call-for-more-action-to-meet-paris-targets – declares strong investor support for the Paris Agreement and the implementation of its goals.

The statement is attached for your consideration. It calls on governments to:

・Achieve the Paris Agreement’s goals;
・Accelerate private sector investment into the low carbon transition; and
・Commit to improve climate-related financial reporting.

Your support for this statement would be a valuable addition to the significant base of existing signatories, at a key moment in the international climate negotiations.

The statement will be sent to the leaders of the G20 nations and re-launched publicly in advance of the G20 Summit on 28-29 June 2019. It will also form the basis of future engagements with governments, with updated signatories, at the UN Secretary General’s Climate Change Summit in September, and at COP25 in December.

To add your organisation’s name to the statement, please complete the short form at this link: https://theinvestoragenda.org/areas-of-impact/policy-advocacy/

The deadline to sign this statement ahead of the G20 re-launch is Monday 3 June 2019.

There is no cost to sign the statement and no further actions are required of signatories. The statement will be signed by organisation names only – not CEOs (no actual signatures are needed).

This statement was drafted through a collaboration among seven organisations, under the auspices of the Investor Agenda https://theinvestoragenda.org/ : the Asia Investor Group on Climate Change (AIGCC), CDP, Ceres, the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC), the Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC), the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and UNEP-FI. The statement is final, and no further changes can be made.

By signing the statement, you consent to your organisation being listed as active under the policy advocacy focus area of the Investor Agenda.

This statement builds on the precedent of previous global investor statements that your organisation may have signed, including the 2017 letter to G7 and G20 Governments https://www.ceres.org/sites/default/files/Global-Investor-Letter-to-G20-Governments.pdf .

In addition to signing the global investor statement, we strongly encourage you to take action in the other areas of The Investor Agenda: Investment https://theinvestoragenda.org/areas-of-impact/investment/ , Corporate Engagement https://theinvestoragenda.org/areas-of-impact/corporate-engagement/ , and Investor Disclosure https://theinvestoragenda.org/areas-of-impact/investor-disclosure/ . Taking action in all four areas sends an important signal to governments that investors are being ambitious in their action on climate change and are seizing the opportunities associated with the low carbon transition.

Thank you for your time and consideration. If you have any questions or need additional information, please let us know.

On behalf of the seven investor organisations (AIGCC, CDP, Ceres, IGCC, IIGCC, PRI and UNEP-FI),

Kind regards,
Rebecca
