Mark Carney, special UN envoy for climate action and former Bank of England governor, calls the move to net zero the “greatest commercial opportunity of our time.” Investors also need to take steps to protect their portfolios from climate risks: Some investments will be disadvantaged in the transition to net zero, while others will find themselves vulnerable to physical risks from extreme events caused by climate change. By some estimates, the global economy could be as much as 14%, or $23 trillion, smaller in 2050 than it otherwise would be if climate change continues unabated.

Fund investors have a burgeoning number of choices to invest in climate-change-related opportunities, as well as to mitigate climate risk in their portfolios. In this article, portions of which were published earlier this year, we sort out the climate-focused fund landscape to help investors navigate what can be a confusing mix of offerings as they seek to decarbonize their investments and help finance the transition to a low-carbon economy.
