Climate Change Edition

We are pleased to share with you the latest edition of our Responsible Investment Update. This month, following our release of Climate Change Scenarios - Implications for Strategic Asset Allocation, we take an in-depth look at investment issues and the policy environment around climate change. For more information regarding Mercer's recent work on climate change, please visit our climate change website.

  • Governing Climate Risk - Investors are the Emerging Force
    As the world becomes more interconnected and independent, global governance of key issues such as climate change is critical. In this article, Mercer discusses collaborative approaches to improving climate governance, global policy approaches to mitigating climate risk and investor strategies for responding to related risks and opportunities.


  • Climate Change Scenarios - Implications for Strategic Asset Allocation
    Continued delay in climate change policy action and international coordination could cost institutional investors trillions of dollars over the coming decades, according to this new research by Mercer and a group of leading investors representing $2 trillion in assets under management. Learn more about the report and related events.
