Description The Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) is a forum for collaboration on climate change for investors.
Objectives IIGCC provides investors with a collaborative platform to encourage public policies, investment practices, and corporate behavior that address long-term risks and opportunities associated with climate change.

IIGCC pursues its mission through two strategic objectives: 1. Changing market signals by encouraging the adoption of strong and credible public policy solutions that ensure an orderly and efficient move to a low carbon economy, as well as measures for adaptation. 2. Informing investment practices to preserve and enhance long-term investment values.

Activities To deliver on its objectives, IIGCC operates a number of programmes that commission research, produce reports and engage with various stakeholders. These are some of the planned and on-going projects in each of IIGCCs main focus areas:

1. Policy The mission of IIGCCs Policy programme is to develop and communicate investor positions on policy and regulatory frameworks at international, regional and national level to support a shift in favour of less carbon-intensive investment. 2. Climate Risk The aim of IIGCCs Climate Risk programme is to help investors identify, and to the extent possible, quantify the strategic implications of policy measures and physical risks to long-term investments with a view to inform communication with other stakeholders. 3. Corporate The mission of IIGCCs Corporate programme is to deepen investor understanding of the nature of risks and opportunities faced by companies, as well as their strategies and performance in addressing them. There is also a special focus on company views on climate change policy. 4. Property IIGCCs Property programme has two principal aims: The first is to engage with policymakers to ensure appropriate policies are put in place which maximise environmental benefits whilst maintaining and enhancing property investment returns. The second aim is to ensure that considerations of climate change and its implications are integrated into the management and decision-making process for property investment portfolios. 5. Global IIGCC collaborates with regional investor networks and others. The Global Investor Coalition on Climate Change is a collaboration between IIGCC, INCR, IGCC and AIGCC for shared international initiatives on climate policy and other projects of common interest.
