IFM at COP28
With trillions of dollars required to facilitate the just and orderly energy transition, the role of long-term, patient capital is important in unlocking the scale of mitigation and adaptation we need to see.
At COP28 for we had virtual and in-person events where we shared the stage with prominent thought leaders, front runners of business and institutional investors to share our latest thinking and collaborate on solutions to the most pressing challenge of our times.

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.
Zero time to spare - A perspective on how infrastructure investors can contribute to global temperature goals
This paper focuses on transport infrastructure, and how airports, seaports and road infrastructure can each support decarbonisation across their respective sectors.
