Banks consider how to include climate change in their investment decisions

London, 11 January: A group of investment banks is to investigate how best to include climate change in investment decisions.

The London Accord will seek to provide investors with more information on how best to make investments that address climate change. Sponsored by the City of London Corporation and BP, the project already has the support of investment banks including Morgan Stanley, Bank Sarasin, HSBC, Société Générale, Credit Suisse and Canaccord Adams.

“If you look at the field of climate change and investment decision-making, lots of people are aware of it and want to integrate it into their decisions. But not many people are sure of how you go about it,” said project director Jan-Peter Onstwedder, who was previously head of risk in BP’s supply and trading business.
