COP26 Declaration: asset owner climate expectations of asset management

We have developed a set of minimum climate expectations for asset managers that will be endorsed by influential asset owners, from universities, charities and pension funds. We hope to use this initiative to send a strong market signal to asset managers about what progressive asset owners expect, helping other asset owners, journalists, civil society, and politicians to judge what is good practice and what is greenwash as many make climate leadership claims in the run up to, and during, COP26. The initiative is led by Students Organising for Sustainability (SOS-UK) and Friends Provident Foundation, in partnership with the Charities Responsible Investment Network (CRIN) and Responsible Investment Network – Universities (RINU).
