Description The Montréal Carbon Pledge allows investors (asset owners and investment managers) to formalise their commitment to the goals of the Portfolio Decarbonization Coalition, which mobilises investors to measure, disclose and reduce their portfolio carbon footprints.

PRI is an investor initiative in partnership with UNEP Finance Initiative and UN Global Compact.

Activities annually measure the carbon footprint of an equities portfolio, or portion thereof. The Montréal Carbon Pledge also considers a carbon footprint of other asset classes, including private equity.
