Harvesting, processing and compiling data methodologyThis database built by the Novethic’s research center makes an inventory of worldwide investors that take into account climate change in their investments decisions. The bubbles’ size is function of assets held or managed in each country.
Only committed investors were taken into account.
We have chosen four types of actions:
It consists of financing low carbon projects, like investing in green bonds or in solar technologies.
It is the exclusion of high-GHG-emitting companies from their portfolios.
It consists of using its shareholder rights in order to make companies take more into account climate changes in their corporate policies.
4- Carbon footprint
It consists of calculating the amount of emissions being financed.
Novethic identified 60 investors listed also in the Global climate 500 index of the Asset Owner Disclosure Project (AODP). It is thus possible to list the biggest investors’ climate policies.
