The Net Zero Investor Playbook

Investor Leadership Network’s Net Zero Investor Playbook offers an inventory of approaches institutional investors are taking to transition investing and highlights key challenges.

The Net Zero Investor Playbook summarizes of the wide range of approaches to transition investing that investors are taking and categorizes them into four themes:

  1. Portfolio emissions forecasting and target setting
  2. Alignment with broader portfolio construction and risk parameters
  3. Portfolio transition taxonomies
  4. Portfolio holdings’ transition capacity metrics.

Within each of the four themes, the Playbook synthesizes the current landscape of relevant investor-specific frameworks and methodologies, the related implementation challenges being experienced by investors, and anticipated enhancements to available guidance that will assist investors in moving forward. To complement the report’s analysis, case studies from individual ILN members on their customized implementation approaches are featured.
