ESG Impacts Committee - Climate Change Working Group
In late 2015 a climate change working group was established as a subgroup of the ESG committee. The group includes members from a cross section of our investment teams. The group is charged with developing guidance for all investment teams on the integration and management of climate change risks and opportunities.
ESG Committee - Stranded Assets Working Group (Completed)
In late 2013 we established a stranded assets working group which like the climate change working group comprised a cross section of investment teams to develop guidance. The group developed guidance which we described in our 2015 responsible investment and stewardship report.

The RI team helps support investment teams in a number of ways as it relates to climate change. The team also distributes research, provides advice and engages with clients and the industry on climate change related issues and feed these back into the organisation through the teams. The team also leads our work with industry groups and other stakeholders on climate change related activities. We are active members of the Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC) among others.
