FDC becomes a member of IIGCC
FDC’s investment strategy and responsible investor policy puts particular emphasis on engagement, especially with regard to environmental issues and greenhouse gas emissions.
The year 2023 has thus been dedicated to the definition and implementation of FDC’s formal engagement policy.
In this context, FDC is proud to announce that it has become a member of the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC).
What is IIGCC?
IIGCC is the leading European membership body enabling the European investment community in driving significant and real progress by 2030 towards a net zero and resilient future. In this context, IIGCC works closely with investors to provide guidance, frameworks, tools and support and helps to respond to challenges and integrate management of climate-related risks and opportunities into their investment processes.
IIGCC work is delivered across three programme areas: policy, investor strategies and corporate and covers a range of important topics, including for example net zero as well as climate adaptation and resilience. IIGCC works in strategic partnership with investors supporting, enabling and showcasing their role in the realisation of the transition to net zero in support of the goals of the Paris Agreement.
In addition, IIGCC has developed a number of flagship tools and frameworks to support investors on their climate journeys and played a key role in launching a number of investor initiatives with global reach and relevance such as the Paris Aligned Asset Owners initiative, the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative, the Net Zero Engagement initiative or the Climate Action 100+ initiative.
