12/20 GIB Asset Management

11 December 2020: GIB Asset Management, alongside 30 other investors, has committed to working in collaboration with clients to achieve target-based net-zero goals by 2050 or sooner. Representing over $9 trillion assets under management, this leading group has committed to prioritising the achievement of real economy emissions reduction within the sectors and companies in which the asset managers invest.

Katherine Garrett-Cox, CEO of GIB Asset Management: “On behalf of GIB Asset Management, I am delighted to be a founding signatory to the Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative. During my time at Aviva, we were founding signatories to the Principles for Responsible Investment and saw first-hand how positive impact could be embedded into clients’ portfolios leading to the outperformance of their investments. Nearly fifteen years have passed, and our great hope today is that a similar initiative focused on net-zero will support a much-needed shift towards climate-friendly investments, for the benefit of future generations as well as the planet.”
