"there are barriers to redirect capital to climate action (high confidence)" 

- Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) AR6 Synthesis Report, Climate Change 2023

The investment funds sector is a legacy spanning over 150 years. It has undergone transformative shifts, increasingly positioning itself as a powerful force in combating the climate emergency and ecological challenges. In recent years it has underscored its potential to play a pivotal role in redirecting significant capital towards green investments, essential for limiting the global temperature increase to 2°C.

 

The London Stock Exchange now recognises these investments with the Green Economy Mark. The urgency to channel further investments into sustainable sectors could not be more critical. With over 190 nations committed to combat climate change through the Paris Agreement, adopted at the UN Climate Change conference (COP21) which entered into force on the 4th November 2016, action must follow suit.

 

The investment company industry in the United Kingdom stands as a proven beacon, offering a robust business model capable of significantly scaling investments within the green and the blue economy, essential to meeting our international commitments.
