Asset Owners Disclosure Project

Background

Oct 30, 2013 - 4:00pm

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.

The AODP has two key initiatives: an annual survey of the world's 1,000 largest asset owners, to find out how they are handing their investments in light of risks posed by climate change; and a grassroots social media campaign called The Vital Few, encouraging members to pose the same question to their funds directly.
