Organizations eligible to participate in the IIR are global pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, government reserve funds and endowments:

  1. Who have the internal capabilities to invest large-scale capital over a long-time horizon;
  2. Whose fiduciaries are national governments, pensioners or the general public;
  3. Whose business model do not include significant asset management activities for third parties (the IIR is not open to asset management firms or insurers with significant asset management activities).
  4. Who are committed to collaborate with their like-minded peers around illiquid (private market) investment; and
  5. Who agree with the IIR’s Rules of Engagement.

A successful collaborative effort among global asset owners on a subject as complex as climate change can only be possible if the two following conditions coexist on a continual basis:

  1. Clear “buy in” at the institutional level;
  2. Clear mandate to appropriate executive(s) for execution (“heavy lifting”).

To ensure coordination on both levels, all interested IIR organizations are invited to appoint contact persons in investment strategy (“horizontal decision-making”) and implementation (“vertical decision making”):

  1. “Horizontal” leaders (on strategy): are senior investment executives whose mandate is focused on setting priorities at the institutional level around cross-asset class strategy, e.g. CIOs, head of investment strategy, etc.); and
  2. “Vertical” leaders (on implementation): are senior investment executives responsible for the implementation of the institution’s strategy in this collaborative effort.
