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 Coalition is building on the US$55 billion commitment by Danish pension funds towards green investments at Climate Action Summit in September 2019. Through working with the required network of stakeholders including asset owners, asset managers, developers, energy companies, technology providers, governments and international organisations, the Coalition is mobilising transformational financial commitments to significantly impact the global climate emergency. In 2022, the Climate Investment Coalition is continuing its mobilisation of financial commitments through an investment roadmap to COP27.
