Climate change is a financial risk. However, the transition to a low carbon economy also offers significant investment opportunities.

This document is a summary of the recommendations detailed in the WWF Climate Guide to Asset Owners. Each of the 15 recommendations contains links to the relevant chapters of the Climate Guide, tools where relevant and additional references.  

The recommendations to asset owners can be grouped in three categories according to key roles they play:
  • learning and seeking advice
  • decision-making
  • monitoring service providers and engaging with key stakeholders
Aiming to align investments with the Paris Agreement – by taking action in line with the recommendations in this Guide – will contribute to investing in the best interests of members and beneficiaries and therefore fulfil asset owners’ fiduciary duties.
