Investor Decarbonisation Initiative

Harnessing investor power to accelerate corporate climate action.

Picture of the author
Climate change poses serious risks to life as we know it. The evidence is clear: failing to decarbonise our global economy will see irreversible impacts for our natural world, and everything that calls it home – including us.

We have the tools to fix this crisis, but with companies responsible for a huge portion of global emissions we will not achieve this without corporate action. While some forward-looking businesses recognise the need to act, many companies are vastly unprepared. Others block action at every turn. Investors have a huge role to play in shaping both the pace and scale of this transition. The Investor Decarbonisation Initiative aims to bring together investors to accelerate corporate action on climate change in key battleground sectors. Building on previous success securing corporate commitments across the global economy, it's now focusing its efforts on high-carbon sectors, specifically transport and chemicals.

More on our work tackling climate change

The Investor Decarbonisation Initiative helps investors:


Coalition members can amplify their influence over companies through collective engagements. These can push companies to set ambitious decarbonisation goals as well as hold them accountable to those targets.


Using detailed research and topical briefings, investors can learn about the credibility of different decarbonisation pathways, enabling them to better assess corporate transition plans.


Through company AGMs, letters and roundtables, investors can engage companies to ensure that decarbonisation remains at the top of their agenda.
