Investor Letter to G20 Highlights Role of Markets in Climate Change Solutions

(London, 17 December 2009) – Today institutional investors on the Board of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) – the UN-backed  global initiative on responsible institutional investment with signatories representing USD 18 trillion in assets under management – sent an open letter to Heads of State in the Group of Twenty (G20). The letter urges Heads of State to ensure a clear recognition in any agreement coming out of the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, or from subsequent Conferences planned for Bonn and Mexico in 2010, of the important role that capital markets, institutional investors and private finance will play if the global community is to deliver the needed transformation to a low–carbon and resource-efficient global economy.
