Background

The Climate Investment Coalition builds on the successful work delivered at the 2019 UN Secretary-General’s Climate Action Summit. At the Summit 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 Investors 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"

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"
