According to the AODP this is the “first ever global climate investment index showing how the world’s biggest investors, including superannuation funds, are managing climate risk.”  The report shows that little consideration by asset owners is given to climate change risks.  The global index was built following information requests to the world’s 1,000 largest asset owners including over 800 pension funds, 80 insurance companies, 50 sovereign wealth funds and 50 foundations/endowments.

The report states that the global nature of asset management means that the impacts of climate change are likely to permiate through the enitre sector.  The report focusses on five key themes: transparency, risk management, investment chain alignment, active ownership and low carbon investment.   As well as the report the AODB allows users to explore the AODP Global Climate Index using a range of filters including region, country, fund type and rating.
