Shortly after becoming a signatory in 2010, Townsend joined the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) as an Advisory Board member. In 2016, Townsend was influential in the launch of the GRESB Infrastructure initiative, which was formed in partnership with the team at GRESB.

Description

Climate Action 100+ is a five-year initiative led by investors to engage with the world’s largest corporate greenhouse gas emitters to improve governance on climate change, curb emissions and strengthen climate-related financial disclosures. To date, 256 investors with USD $28 trillion in assets under management have signed on to the initiative. 

The initiative is designed to implement the investor commitment first set out in the Global Investor Statement on Climate Change in the months leading up to the adoption of the historic Paris Agreement in 2015.

“As institutional investors and consistent with our fiduciary duty to our beneficiaries, we will work with the companies in which we invest to ensure that they are minimising and disclosing the risks and maximizing the opportunities presented by climate change and climate policy.”
