QUEBEC, 4 JUNE 2018 – As leaders gather in Canada for the 2018 G7 Summit, 288 institutional investors with $26 trillion in assets under management urged governments to step up their ambition and action to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement, support investment in the low-carbon transition, and improve climate-related financial disclosures.

“The global shift to clean energy is underway, but much more needs to be done by governments to accelerate the low carbon transition and to improve the resilience of our economy, society and the financial system to climate risks,” investors wrote in a joint statement announced today (4 June).

The statement known as the 2018 Global Investor Statement to Governments on Climate Change was delivered to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and G7 government leaders. View the statement and full list of signatories here.
