Learn how to turn a climate investment strategy into a climate impact strategy

What does it mean to be a climate impact investor? Despite rigorous debate on this topic and the beginning of regulatory action, there remains widespread confusion about the difference between an investor that considers climate-related factors versus an investor that prioritizes making a positive impact on the climate.

A new guide from Tideline attempts to address this market confusion by laying out how the core characteristics of impact investing — intentionality, contribution and measurement — can be integrated into a climate investment strategy to affect change.

For example, climate-focused investors should prioritize robust integration of climate objectives pre-investment; discipline in measuring real-world emissions; and the attribution of emissions reductions to a particular investment or action.

Featuring case studies on the Brookfield Global Transition Fund and British International Investment, this Tideline guide offers best practices that “every climate investor must master to withstand market scrutiny and maintain a position as a leader in the fight to address climate change.”
