Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) has joined the World Climate Summit. the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) is a collaboration of European pension funds and asset managers on climate change. The group has around 60 members, including most of the largest pension funds in Europe, representing assets of around EUR 5 Trillion.

Ole Beier Sørensen, IIGCC Chairman, said that: "Private sector investment is critical to addressing climate change. Only if private investors are mobilised effectively can we hope to see climate investments developing at the scale and pace needed. Pension funds and asset managers are ready to step up to the challenge, if they are supported by strong, effective and long-term climate policy. The World Climate Summit provides the IIGCC and its members with a platform in Cancun to make these views heard."

Michael Mathres, co-Founder of the World Climate Summit said, "In order to unlock the necessary capital to tackle climate change, it is imperative to discuss with and bring pension funds, and other large institutional investors. For that reason we are delighted to be working with the IIGCC."
