LAPFF members are interested in investment opportunities afforded by a low-carbon future which increase asset diversification and provide long-term returns. LAPFF considers that companies should report on their approach to carbon management in the context of how they are factoring climate change into their business strategy.

 

When engaging, LAPFF encourages companies to align their business models with a 2°C scenario to
push for an orderly transition to a low-carbon economy.

 

For some oil and gas companies, a focus has been on value at risk, particularly from high-cost projects and support has been given to returning capital to investors where appropriate. The companies that the Forum has recently engaged with on carbon risk include Rio Tinto, BP, Royal Dutch Shell, Total and Glencore.

 

LAPFF is a member of the Investor Network on Climate Risk (INCR) and of the investor coalition which has been successful in filing strategic resilience resolutions with UK-listed extractive companies, which received board and investor support of 96% and over.
