AIGCC is part of the Global Investor Coalition on Climate Change (GIC)
In December 2012, the four regional climate change investor groups, Institutional Investor Group on Climate Change (IIGCC - Europe), Ceres Investor Network on Climate Risk and Sustainability (Ceres - North America), Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC - Australia & New Zealand) and AIGCC (Asia) formed the Global Investor Coalition on Climate Change (GIC). The coalition provides a global platform for dialogue between investors and governments on climate policy, facilitates corporate engagement on climate risk, and supports increased low carbon investment. www.globalinvestorcoalition.org
The current Asia Investor Group on Climate Change (AIGCC) was launched as part of the Global Investor Coalition in September 2016 in Singapore.
The AIGCC was previously established as an initiative set up in 2011 by the Association for Sustainable and Responsible Investment in Asia (ASrIA - now PRI Asia), to create awareness among Asia’s asset owners and financial institutions about the risks and opportunities associated with climate change and low carbon investing.
The merger between ASrIA and the Principles for Responsible Investment was completed at the end of 2015 to form PRI Asia, with AIGCC now operating independently.
