About Executive Summary: Net Zero Investor Playbook

September, 2022

ILN’s Climate Change Advisory Council published a Net Zero Investor Playbook in September 2022 to help investors navigate the challenge of transition financing.

Part 1 and 2 of this Net Zero Investor Playbook synthesizes the current landscape of relevant investor-specific frameworks and methodologies, and case studies from individual ILN members on their customized implementation approaches. The resources and methodologies are categorized into four themes:

  1. Portfolio emissions forecasting and target setting
  2. Alignment with portfolio construction and investment risk parameters
  3. Portfolio transition taxonomies
  4. Assessments of portfolio holdings’ transition capacity, and portfolio alignment metrics

Part 3 analyzes the related implementation challenges being experienced by investors, as well as anticipated enhancements to available guidance that will assist investors in moving forward.
