Open letter to Finance Ministers in the Group of Seven (G-7)

120 investor CEOs from around the world managing funds worth more than $12 trillion have written an open letter to finance ministers urging them to support the inclusion of a long-term emissions reduction goal in the international climate agreement due to be sealed in Paris in December. The letter has been shared with ministers ahead of the 26-27th May meetings of G7 Finance Ministers in Dresden, Germany.

  1. A long-term global emissions reduction goal in the Paris agreement;
  2. The submission of short to medium-term national emissions pledges and country level action plans.
