SAUL calls on governments to take action on climate change
7 June 2018
The global shift to clean energy is underway, but much more needs to be done by governments to accelerate the low carbon transition and to improve the resilience of our economy, society and the financial system to climate risks.
Investors are also becoming increasingly aware of how climate change could impact their investments over the long-term and many are beginning to incorporate climate change scenarios, climate risk management strategies and engagement with high-emitting companies into their investment processes. To build on this momentum and maintain investor confidence to further shift investment portfolios, it is vital that policy makers are firmly committed to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement.
We are pleased to announce that SAUL has signed the new Global Investor Statement to Governments on Climate Change. The statement calls on governments to:
- achieve the Paris Agreement’s goals;
- accelerate private sector investment into the low carbon transition, and
- commit to improve climate-related financial reporting.
