Asset Owners Disclosure Project


May 02, 2016 - 10:00am

The Asset Owners Disclosure Project (AODP) was originally developed in 2008 as an initiative of The Climate Institute.

Today the two maintain a close working relationship but the AODP is an independent global not-for-profit organisation aiming to protect people's retirement savings from the risks posed by climate change. It does this by helping funds to redress the huge imbalance in their investments between high-carbon assets (50-60 per cent of a portfolio) and low-carbon assets (typically less than 2 per cent) and realigning the investment chain to adopt long-term investment practices.

AODP recognises the specific financial risk attributes of climate change. AODP has developed the world’s leading reporting framework for institutional investors encompassing the disclosure and management of climate risk.
