The 2°C Challenge Communiqué calls on governments to break the deadlock in the international climate change negotiations and take the necessary action at a national level.

The Principles for Responsible Investment were developed by an international group of institutional investors reflecting the increasing relevance of environmental, social and corporate governance issues to investment practices. The process was convened by the United Nations Secretary-General. In signing the Principles, we as investors publicly commit to adopt and implement them, where consistent with our fiduciary responsibilities. We also commit to evaluate the effectiveness and improve the content of the Principles over time. We believe this will improve our ability to meet commitments to beneficiaries as well as better align our investment activities with the broader interests of society. We encourage other investors to adopt the Principles. ECP's 2011 'Reports on Progress' in implementing the UNPRI can be downloaded as a PDF document from the UNPRI page on this website, found under the Sustainability tab. It is also available on the UNPRI website. Visit site
The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) launched in 2000 to collect and distribute high quality information that motivates investors, corporations and governments to take action to prevent dangerous climate change. CDP acts on behalf of 475 institutional investors (including Earth Capital Partners LLP), holding $55 trillion in assets under management and some 60 purchasing organizations to encourage companies in some 60 countries around the world to measure and disclose their greenhouse gas emissions and climate change strategies.
