About the GIC

The Global Investor Coalition on Climate Change is a collaboration among four regional partner organisations around the world to increase investor education and engagement on climate change and climate-related policies. Launched in 2012, the coalition provides a global platform for dialogue between and among investors and world governments to accelerate low-carbon investment practices, corporate actions on climate risk and opportunities, and international policies that support the goals of the Paris Agreement.

The organisations that make up the coalition include Asia Investor Group on Climate Change (AIGCC), Ceres, Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC), and Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC). The regions in which the coalition partners are working in include Asia, Australia, Europe and North America.

The regional partners work together to produce research reports and public policy statements and support global investor-led climate initiatives and investor-focused climate events. In 2017, the coalition partners joined other partners and investors to launch Climate Action 100+, an initiative to ensure the world’s largest corporate greenhouse gas emitters take necessary action on climate change. The following year, they joined with three other partner organisations to launch The Investor Agenda.

The regional groups work collaboratively on these global efforts to deliver better investor climate action and outcomes.

The coalition aims to drive action in the following areas:

  • Investment: transformation of investment practices to tackle climate risks and opportunities and re-allocate capital to the low-carbon economy
  • Corporate: acceleration of corporate action, accountability and disclosure on climate risks and opportunities
  • Policy: implementation of effective policies and regulations to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement
