Despite the growing sense of urgency around tackling climate change, not enough sustainable fund managers are challenging company boards on their net zero carbon emissions policies.

This is largely because they do not have a simple, systematic framework with which to begin the conversation. So, to help move the conversation forward, at P1 Investment Management we have devised the Net Zero Carbon 10 target (NZC10).

This allows fund managers to better align their investment policies to the requirement for carbon-neutrality, rather than just emissions reduction. The approach focuses on net zero emissions - firms can have some carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, so long as these are reliably offset.
