Net Zero Asset Owners Launch Fixed Income Collaboration

The UN-convened Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance (NZAOA) and the Anthropocene Fixed Income Institute (AFII) are collaborating to promote net zero alignment in the global fixed income markets to support the efforts of alliance members to decarbonise their investment portfolios. The AFII was founded in 2020 with the aim of influencing the investment decisions of bond portfolio managers and traders to change cost-of-capital in favour of a sustainable future. According to a statement, AFII’s market practitioner’s approach to embedding positive climate impact across credit portfolios along with NZAOA members’ demonstrated leadership to achieve alignment with the Paris Agreement in their investment portfolios makes the collaboration “a timely step in addressing blind spots” in fixed income markets. “While listed equity markets are very much in focus in the engagement and the decarbonisation debate, fixed income is for most asset owners the key asset class for steering their investment portfolios to net-zero emissions,” said Remco Fischer, UNEP FI Programme Officer for Climate and NZAOA Secretariat Co-Lead.
