Oxford Martin Principles for Climate-Conscious Investment

06 February 2018

View Briefing

The Oxford Martin Principles provide a framework for engagement between climate-conscious investors and companies across the global economy. Building upon the science of long-term climate change, they focus on how investments contribute to the global stock of cumulative carbon dioxide emissions, complementing other measures, such as carbon footprinting, that focus on emission flows.
