The following investment institutions and networks have so far committed to apply the Global Standard: we invite others to join us by contacting

As investors and groups, we:

Call on companies to ensure that all of their advocacy is supportive of early and consistent deployment of ambitious climate policies in the markets that they operate in, which can deliver a managed and cost-effective transition in line with the goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050, as well as appropriately ambitious interim targets. As active owners we are committed to engaging collectively and individually with companies globally to highlight and improve their climate lobbying accountability and performance and to escalate this stewardship where required.

Accept our own role in demonstrating and encouraging best practice on climate policy lobbying that is in line with the Paris Agreement goals and the best available science. We will strongly and consistently support policy measures directed at achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 or sooner and be transparent in our own policy positions and engagements. We will convey this expectation to the companies in which we invest and signal this commitment through our own actions.

The expectation for companies to advocate responsibly on climate policy is not new. The time to demonstrate full application of the responsible corporate climate lobbying standard as a matter of urgency is now.
