The Leading Global Public-Private Partnership Mobilising Ambitious Financial Commitments for Climate Solution Investments by 2030
The Climate Investment Coalition (CIC) is founded by the Government of Denmark, Insurance & Pension Denmark, the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) and World Climate Foundation as the leading global public-private partnership mobilising ambitious financial investments towards clean energy and climate solutions now and in the coming decade.
In 2021, with support from the Nordic Council of Ministers, the Climate Investment Coalition convened leading institutional investors, governments and other stakeholders in climate finance to help mobilise a total collective commitment of US$130 billion from Nordic and UK pension funds to be invested in clean energy and climate investments by 2030.
The Climate Investment Coalition is led by a public-private sector Steering Committee and a Secretariat who is responsible for the implementation of CIC’s key working tracks and activities.
