Highlights

This event marked the launch of the London Accord 2007 compendium of reports titled "London Accord: Making Investment Work For The Climate". This publication reflects two years of true collaboration between financial services, academic centres and other research centres. It is the largest- ever private-sector investment collaboration into climate change, representing work valued at £7million ($15million). Buy-side firms such as Universities Superannuation Scheme, Insight, and Legal & General helped sell-side firms and analysts shape the project to ensure its outcomes would be useful to investors. Observers from the EU, the International Energy Agency, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and others have also been involved. The London Accord 2007 could not have been possible without support from BP, the City of London Corporation, Gresham College, Z/Yen Group and all the contributing organisations and authors.
