By embedding climate justice criteria in Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) frameworks, investors can develop portfolios that enable sustainable development and safeguard the rights of people in vulnerable situations.
Synergies exist between ESG investment frameworks and the Principles of Climate Justice. Global investors can steer investment towards low carbon, climate resilient activities that are good for people and the planet. The Mary Robinson Foundation – Climate Justice has completed a research project to highlight how, by incorporating climate justice, the investment community can play a pivotal role in achieving a safe future underpinned by shared and durable prosperity.
