Four investor networks are supporting investors with the Paris Alignment Investor Initiative. This aims to maximise the contribution asset owners and asset managers make in tackling climate change and achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.

Globally, more than 110 asset owners and asset managers are involved in the initiative with assets of over USD33 trillion. The four investor networks driving this are IGCC (Australia and New Zealand), IIGCC (Europe), Ceres (North America) and AIGCC (Asia). Together they have identified best practice methodologies for measuring alignment, transitioning portfolios and taking action to drive the transition to net zero.
