Climate risk influences investment decisions

Climate risk assessments are influencing institutional investment decisions, a survey by the Global Investor Coalition on Climate Change has found

The finding is based on responses from 37 asset owners and 47 asset managers, collectively valued at $14trn.

More than half of asset managers said they decided to divest, or not to invest, in listed equities based on climate concerns.

Moreover, more than two thirds of asset owners said climate change influenced their fund manager decisions in 2012. This is a marked increase from about two fifths in last year’s survey.
