Private capital as a force to limit climate change

Long term investors’ expectations for a global agreement on climate change.

Sustainable growth does not just happen on its own. Political and executive leadership is required to create conditions that keep investments in green growth attractive; policies that over the long term provide certainty.

This paper describes our ambitions, ideas and needs. In order to increase our joint investment ambitions, the role of the governments is critical. It is of utmost importance that policies are reliable and undesirable effects of the supervision of financial institutions that impede investment in green growth are critically assessed. We therefore urge policymakers to act on the recommendations in this paper:

  • Innovative de-risking models based on blending public and private finance could help to overcome the constraints that climate related investments in developing countries face: high political and financial risks.
  • We strongly advocate mechanisms that put a price on carbon, as they are best at shifting capital and knowledge towards the most efficient solutions.
  • Policymakers should increasingly support and explore the opportunities within energy efficiency in order to drive innovation, unlock private capital and mitigate risk of energy price volatility.
  • Closer cooperation between public and private parties aiming at creating a stable investment environment is necessary to boost impact investing.

Together we believe we can counteract climate change, which is more than ever necessary.
