Climate Investment Coalition

The World Climate Foundation is one of the founding partners of the Climate Investment Coalition (CIC), an independent public-private sector initiative that convenes asset owners, asset managers, businesses and governments to work across sectors to develop investable markets for climate solutions through public-private Ambition Loops. In 2021, the CIC supported an unparalleled total collective commitment from Nordic and UK pension funds of US$130 billion to be invested in clean energy by 2030 and reported on annually.

[...] if we can raise $55 billion from Danish pension funds alone, imagine what we can achieve if more countries are to join us? That is why we decided to create the Climate Investment Coalition. We work to bring governments and institutional investors together to mobilise and accelerate investments in the green transition.
