It’s time for investors to step up.
With their full shareholder power, there is still time to prevent the worst effects of climate change.

What We’re
Calling For

Institutional investors and asset managers hold shares in virtually every publicly listed company in the world, including oil and gas majors, coal producers, banks, and companies driving deforestation. To ensure assets are managed responsibly and in line with a pathway that will preserve a livable planet for all of us, we’re asking investors to support the transition to a decarbonized economy by:


Implementing assertive, time-bound engagement policies


Voting for shareholder climate resolutions, and against climate-incompetent directors


Exiting fossil fuel companies and other climate-destructive corporations that can’t or won’t transition

The Problem

To have a chance of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees, scientists say that we need to halve carbon emissions this decade. Yet companies are continuing to dig up more coal, gas, and oil, and to build cars, power stations, and infrastructure which burn fossil fuels. Institutional investors own and finance these companies, but are failing to use their shareholder power to push for companies to act on climate.

The Solution

Institutional investors have serious power to shape companies’ futures. By denying new money for fossil fuel expansion, and voting on resolutions and directors at companies’ annual meetings, investors can ignite a swift transition to clean energy. A small number of investors have started to act in this way, and many more have recently signed up to net zero pledges. If they step up and use their full shareholder power, there’s still time to prevent the worst of climate change.
