Net Zero Blueprint for Institutional Investors

We’re FFI Solutions, your climate research and carbon experts.

Overview 2024: Adapting to Today's Climate Challenges

We published the first and second editions of our Net Zero Blueprint for Institutional Investors based on the premise that net zero portfolio goals would be widely adopted. While the transition to a low-carbon economy is underway, market participants face challenges in committing to and implementing a net zero portfolio strategy.

This year’s edition, now titled “Climate Integration Framework for Institutional Investors,” reflects the current state of global decarbonization efforts, the inevitable transition to a clean energy economy, and the politicization of ESG investing.

While net zero remains a crucial societal goal, the focus for a broader set of allocators should shift towards integrating climate risks and opportunities into their decision-making frameworks. Our updated framework helps institutional asset owners align climate considerations within the fundamental activities of Governance, Strategy, Implementation, and Monitoring – ensuring comprehensive integration of climate-related risks and opportunities into the investment process.

  • How to define organizational goals and ambitions regarding climate change
  • Approaches to setting net zero commitments and emissions targets
  • Strategies to align with ambitions, including investment in climate solutions, shareholder engagement, and divestment
  • How to adjust manager due diligence and selection practices for climate objectives
