OUR GLOBAL WORK

CARBON-NEUTRAL INVESTMENT BY 2050
In one of the boldest moves yet by investors
to decarbonize the global economy, a WWFsupported alliance of the world's largest pension
funds and insurers - responsible for directing
nearly US$4 trillion in investments - committed
to carbon-neutral investment portfolios by 2050.
Investors in the Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance
are stepping up to protect people and planet - and
signalling that to receive investment, companies
must address climate change and deliver a thriving
low-carbon economy. The alliance was convened
by UNEP's Finance Initiative and the Principles
for Responsible Investment.

STANDARDS SETTING FOR GREEN BONDS
Our long-term advocacy for credible global
standards on green bonds - financial instruments
linked to environmental investment - has seen
strong progress. We were closely involved in
developing a proposed EU Green Bond Standard,
as well as forthcoming legislation defining a
European framework for sustainable investments.
Our work with the International Organization
for Standardization included advising on
standards for green bonds. And at a national
level, our work helped lead to the issuance of
Kenya's first green bond, which aims to raise
US$48 million for sustainable and climate-resilient
student accommodation.

INSURANCE INDUSTRY TO PROTECT NATURAL WONDERS
Almost half of natural UNESCO World Heritage
sites, vital to millions of people and containing
our planet's most extraordinary places, are
threatened by harmful human activities. Our
engagement with insurers led to the launch, with
the UNEP Finance Initiative Principles for
Sustainable Insurance and UNESCO, of an
insurance industry commitment to protect these
sites. Our work also resulted in an update to
the Performance Standards of the International
Finance Corporation, a standard followed
by nearly 100 global banks, to
increase protection of these

Shanghai, one of
the world's leading
financial centres.
