As the world comes together to discuss climate change at COP26, we look at how we can make a difference on a global level
This isn’t what the planet needs.
We need a clear framework to tackle climate change, anchored around investment requirements from the public and private sectors.
The Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP15) happening in October and the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in November are the perfect place for us to start this process.
The COP26 summit aims to “bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change”.
At Gresham House, we are committed to delivering effective, alternative investment solutions to ensure clients achieve their financial objectives whilst making a meaningful contribution to advancing the world’s transition to a more sustainable way of life.
This includes providing opportunities to investors that can meaningfully contribute to a net zero – or real zero – world.
Ahead of COP26, we spoke with Sustainable Investment Director Rebecca Craddock-Taylor and Managing Director, Sustainable Infrastructure Peter Bachmann about their expectations for the event, why it matters so much to them, and what success will look like.
“A successful outcome for COP26 would also be an agreement on a global carbon price that accurately reflects the risks of climate change. Current carbon pricing needs to increase significantly to reduce emissions in line with net zero pathways and direct capital towards scaling climate solutions.”
Sustainable forestry is already a proven alternative asset class, but its ability to lock up carbon in perpetuity has meant it has grown in importance and prominence as global economies strive to decarbonise and hit net-zero targets.
This paper outlines the favourable investment case and our preferred geographies for forestry investment opportunities in the near and long term.
The UK’s renewable energy sector has provided investors with stable financial returns and positive environmental credentials over many years.
This paper shows the path to continuing and enhancing these benefits, in an era without Government subsidy support.
We released our inaugural Sustainable Investment Report in March 2021, setting out in detail our progress and commitments to sustainability.
The report aims to demonstrate the work that has been carried out at Gresham House to get to where we are today, including case studies from our asset divisions, measurements of what we have achieved, and key Group milestones.
