Mobilising Global Climate Investments by 2030

In 2024 CIC will expand globally to address the escalating urgency of climate change and leverage a growing international commitment to sustainable investment. The expansion is driven by the recognition that climate change is a universal challenge requiring coordinated, cross-border efforts. This global reach allows the CIC to harness diverse financial markets, tap into a wide array of innovative green technologies, and foster international partnerships. 


The Climate Investment Coalition (CIC) is a global public-private partnership initiative working to make global finance flow consistent with a pathway towards low greenhouse gas emissions and climate-resilient development.

The Climate Investment Coalition's announced a landmark US$130 billion collective, total commitment at COP26 from Nordic and UK pension funds towards clean energy and climate solutions to be invested globally by 2030. As part of this commitment, pension funds are reporting annually on the progress of their climate investments.

"Green transition requires massive investments. Governments have to do their part and commit to a new green future. But we also need private investors on board. In 2019, Danish pension funds committed to invest 55 billion dollars in the green transition by 2030. I am proud that we have inspired others and that Nordic and UK pension funds are now ready to invest 130 billion dollars in total by 2030."

 Mette Frederiksen, Prime Minister of Denmark

Climate Investment Coalition is a high-level public-private sector partnership mobilising significant commitments from institutional investors and asset owners towards green investments in the next decade.


Join us to become a part of an unparalleled global effort to impact the real economy and make finance flows consistent with a pathway towards low greenhouse gas emissions and climate-resilient development. 


The Climate Investment Coalition (CIC) was established following a pledge by Danish pension funds in 2019 to invest DKK350 billion (about US$50 billion) in clean energy and climate initiatives by 2030. This pledge was made public at the UN Secretary General's Climate Action Summit, with the support of the Danish Government, Insurance and Pension Denmark, the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC), and the World Climate Foundation. 

In 2021, the CIC, backed by the Nordic Council of Ministers, brought together top institutional investors, governments, and key players in climate finance. Their goal was to secure a combined promise of US$130 billion from Nordic and UK pension funds for climate-friendly investments by 2030. 

At the COP27 in 2022, the CIC showcased the progress Nordic pension funds had made toward their US$130 billion investment target in climate solutions and clean energy by 2030. Leaders from these pension funds shared successful investment strategies in emerging markets and urged governments to provide supportive policies. 


The CIC is a global initiative that partners with its members, who are asset owners, to track and report their investment commitments annually. This effort demonstrates their progress and encourages both new and expanded pledges to finance climate action by 2030.
