The Paris Aligned Investment Initiative is a collaborative investor-led global forum enabling investors to align their portfolios and activities to the goals of the Paris Agreement.
The Paris Aligned Investment Initiative (PAII) was established in May 2019 by the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC). As of March 2021, the initiative has grown into a global collaboration supported by four regional investor networks – AIGCC (Asia), Ceres (North America), IIGCC (Europe) and IGCC (Australasia).
118 investors representing $34 trillion in assets have engaged in the development of the Net Zero Investment Framework through the Paris Aligned Investment Initiative.
The Paris Aligned Investment Initiative is now collaborating with the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF).
The Paris Aligned Investment Initiative is proud to be a formal partner of the UNFCCC’s Race to Zero Campaign.
The Paris Aligned Investment Initiative enables investors across the globe in supporting a net zero and resilient future.
The international investor-led forum has four key areas of focus:
- Driving net zero investing commitments – by asset managers through the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative and by asset owners through the PAII Net Zero Asset Owner Commitment.
- Providing oversight of Paris Aligned Asset Owners’ disclosures and reporting.
- Collaborating globally as the forum for AIGCC, Ceres, IGCC, IIGCC and the investment community to update, identify or develop and further practical methodologies and approaches to enable Paris aligned investing to be included in the PAII’s Net Zero Investment Framework, or supplementary guidance documents.
- Supporting investors to implement commitments, using the Net Zero Investment Framework.
