James Hambro & Partners has become a member of the influential Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC).
The IIGCC is the European membership body for investor collaboration on climate change. It brings together more than 300 institutional investment houses from 22 countries, between them responsible for managing over €37 trillion of assets.
JH&P Portfolio Manager Patrick Trueman said: “The IIGCC is a very active body that enables investors to collaborate and co-ordinate their activities to push those companies that are not doing enough to meet the net-zero challenge.
“Individual investors can often be powerless to affect change in large companies, but when the weight of the institutional investment community coalesces with sensible challenges to important issues then things tend to happen.
“This is a great way of helping JH&P play its part in ensuring companies are responding appropriately to the climate change challenge. It is a chance to learn and share best practice across the investment community and an opportunity to be involved in some of the conversations that are shaping the way investment owners and managers are acting.”
About the IIGCC
The mission of the IIGCC is to support and enable the investment community in driving significant and real progress by 2030 towards a net zero and resilient future. It believes this will be achieved through capital allocation decisions, stewardship and successful engagement with companies, policy makers and fellow investors. IIGCC works to support and help define the public policies, investment practices and corporate behaviours that address the long-term risks and opportunities associated with climate change.
