The empirical evidence of global warming, and the impact of human activity on the pace of this warming, is in QUAERO CAPITAL’s view unequivocal. If unmanaged and unmitigated, the impact of climate change will be devastating to both society and the global economy.
QUAERO CAPITAL acknowledges the responsibility of the asset management industry in the fight against climate change and takes climate issues into account as an integral part of its responsible investment policy.
QUAERO CAPITAL sees the integration of climate risk as a core part of its fiduciary duty to clients. It also believes that the climate transition provides great opportunity for enhanced financial returns as well as positive impact, and as such continue to innovate and develop opportunities for clients in this sphere.
QUAERO CAPITAL recognises the Paris Agreement ambition to keep global temperatures to 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels, and the further ambition to limit warming to 1.5 degrees as fundamentally important for society as well as its own investments.
QUAERO CAPITAL has signed the statement of support for the Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). As such, QUAERO CAPITAL will make annual disclosures inline with the recommendation in the annual Sustainability Report, outlining QUAERO CAPITAL’s strategy and targets.
