We believe corporate bond investors, especially signatories to the CA100+, should co-ordinate and utilise the power they wield during debt re-financing and issuance to communicate to issuers that, unless a robust strategy to manage climate-related risks and impacts is adopted, they will cease to invest in a company’s bonds.
This report summarises the insights and findings from 22 in-depth interviews with
