What is the value of net zero?

Companies that cut their carbon emissions stand to become more resilient to climate risks, and more commercially successful over the long term.

Climate change is an investment risk. We believe that companies urgently need to transform their business models to collectively avoid the most catastrophic effects of climate change on people and the planet and adapt to future temperature rises. That’s why we engage our investee companies to work out the most appropriate decarbonisation plan for their business models.

We believe there is value in following a net zero by 2050 trajectory plan. This contributes to future proofing companies by helping them to manage risk, capture the opportunities, and potentially deliver improved business performance. How a company responds to the challenges of climate change could be key to its bottom line.

For companies already on track to reach net zero, we continue to engage and vote as shareholders – holding them accountable for making meaningful changes and progress.
