Cadlas is pleased to be working with the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC), and a wide range of stakeholders across the investment industry and beyond, towards the development of a Climate Resilience Investment Framework (CRIF) for institutional investors.


Institutional investors – including asset managers, asset owners and pension funds – have the potential to play a catalytic role in building a climate resilient economy.


As well as having the ability to shift capital at scale towards climate resilient businesses and activities, institutional investors can also encourage and guide a wide range real economy firms and assets towards the adoption of climate-resilient pathways, alongside low-carbon ones.


In line with their fiduciary duties, institutional investors can build capacity to manage the physical climate risks that matter for their portfolios, while supporting the increased allocation of capital towards activities and solutions that build climate resilience across the economy.


IIGCC’s Discussion Paper ‘Towards a Climate Resilience Investment Framework’ sets out a clear rationale and pathway for the development of the CRIF over the coming months. Stakeholder input is welcome by 14 October 2022, via this dedicated online form.
