IFM at COP28

COP28 in Dubai is a vital opportunity for a global stocktake on progress against the Paris Agreement commitments. It’s essential that the key elements of the global society, economy and policy come together to understand where we are and, most importantly, chart the path to bridging the gaps to where we need to be.

IFM Investors was privileged to be attend this global gathering to play our part in unlocking opportunities for the kind of cohesive global action that a successful COP can bring about.

Zero time to spare

There is a rapidly narrowing window of opportunity to limit global warming and secure a stable climate.

Infrastructure plays an important and multi-faceted role in the decarbonisation of economies and societies and climate resilient development. It supports our quality of life and the wellbeing of our communities through vital facilities, services and networks, such as water treatment and electricity. And it enables global trade and development by transporting all manner of goods and information.

Infrastructure investors and operators can meaningfully contribute to global temperature goals across three pillars:

  • asset-level transition that supports sectoral decarbonization

  • action to work towards a Just Transition, and

  • collaboration with government, other investors, and operating firms to fill the net zero investment gap and to support healthy environmental and social systems.

In 2021, IFM Investors developed Just Transition Principles for its infrastructure portfolios, setting out commitments to workers, portfolio companies, public policy and industry engagement.
