UNEP FI and its partners PRI and The Generation Foundation launched the Statement as a way to address many of the misconceptions that still exist around investor duties and obligations. It points to weaknesses in international and national policy frameworks as a barrier for investors to take account of ESG issues in their investment processes, in their dialogue with companies, and in their engagement with policymakers.
“Meeting Paris agreement’s goals will require the full mobilization of all stakeholders, including financial sector actors. I fully support PRI and UNEP FIs efforts to make financial flows consistent with the needed limitation of greenhouse emissions and the financing of climate resilient development” – Mr. Michel Sapin, Minister of Finance, France.
Investors are invited to sign the Statement.
