Transitioning the global economy to low-carbon is one of the largest challenges for many institutional investors. The race to net-zero is well underway, with over one-fifth of the world’s largest corporations having pledged to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050¹.
For institutional investors, this means that environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and climate change implications are growing in importance. As you develop and execute your own climate transition or net-zero strategy, you can turn to the expertise of Mercer’s Global Sustainable Investment team.
Using the team’s Analytics for Climate Transition (ACT) framework, your portfolio’s transition assessment can uncover opportunities to enhance sustainability while maintaining investment risk/return objectives. You can also leverage a range of Mercer resources — reports, whitepapers, videos and more — to help you navigate toward a low-carbon future.
In the last 12 months, the Mercer Sustainable Investment team has been appointed to support over 25 clients globally to set and implement decarbonization plans across their investment portfolios through the use of the ACT framework. These clients represent approximately US$800B in assets across seven countries. With Mercer’s investment advice and solutions, you too can help drive capital toward the low-carbon future envisioned at COP26.
