Creating an impact on the climate emergency by mobilising global green investments this decade to accelerate climate action and green economic pandemic-recovery

The Climate Investment Coalition is impacting the decade of climate action by mobilising significant private sector funding into clean energy and climate investments in order to raise the global ambition required for the world to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. It aims to accelerate green investments in global financial responses in order to rebuild pandemic-affected regional economies through resilient and ambitious green stimulus plans and, kickstart post-COVID-19 economies with sustainable and green agendas.

Background

The Climate Investment Coalition builds on the successful work delivered at the 2019 UN Secretary-General’s Climate Action Summit. At the Summit - Denmark co-led the Energy Transition Track, and the Danish pension funds announced a commitment of USD 50 billion towards clean energy and climate-related investments, to be applied with the required framework conditions from 2020 to 2030.

 

This achievement was achieved through a public-private collaboration between the Government of Denmark, Insurance and Pension Denmark - and the Institutional Investor Group on Climate Change (IIGCC). This partnership will now continue with a clear focus on generating critical international climate investment commitments in the green transition and climate projects to positively impact the climate crisis and promote post-pandemic economic recoveries that ensure climate remains at the forefront of the global agenda and prioritises a just and green energy transition.

Dan Jørgensen, Minister of Climate, Energy and Utilities in Denmark 

"The political response to the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic must reap the synergies between job creation and climate action. Huge amounts of money will be mobilised to boost our economies, and we must seize that as an opportunity to tip the scales from black to green. Institutional investors will play a key role in making the recovery a green one"

"The Danish insurance and pension industry support the Paris Agreement to keep the global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celcius, preferably 1.5 degrees. Institutional investors can play an important role in the green transition by financing green investments, given suitable framework conditions. Through the activities of the Climate Investment Coalition, the Danish pension industry will share its experiences in good green investment practices and framework conditions to promote the green transition internationally"

 

Deputy Chief Executive at Insurance & Pension Denmark, Jan V. Hansen 

 

Climate Investment Coalition

Achieving global climate goals will require trillions of dollars to be invested before 2030, necessitating significant mobilisation of private finance guided by smart government policies.

 

There is also a growing need, now more than ever, to accelerate green investments in global financial responses in order to rebuild pandemic-battered regional economies through resilient and ambitious green agendas.

From 2010 to 2019 Danish pension funds committed USD 17 billion towards global green investments, and in 2019 at the UN Climate Action Summit in New York, Danish pension funds committed USD 50 billion towards green investments between 2020 and 2030, to be applied with the required framework conditions. Selected international institutional investors attending this pivotal announcement also expressed their interest in building on this momentum. 

The Climate Investment Coalition has grown out of this successful announcement, as a public-private sector initiative established by the Danish Government, the Institutional Investor Group on Climate Change (IIGCC), Insurance & Pension Denmark, and World Climate Foundation.

Best Practice Models

The Climate Investment Coalition is gathering best practice business and finance models from internationally renowned institutional investors and project developers, to inspire and showcase successful examples of proven climate investments.
