London School of Economics – Global Climate Transition Centre

A landmark new  Global Climate Transition Centre will be based at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at the London School of Economics and Political Science. The Centre will provide free and publicly available in-depth data on how 10,000 companies are aligning with a net zero pathway, significantly scaling existing coverage across global equity markets. The Centre will also scrutinise corporate and sovereign bond issuers – a vital part of the climate transition. Increasing the amount of information that investors have about how companies are managing their greenhouse gas emissions and the risks and opportunities they face will support transparency and accountability, incentivising them to deliver on climate commitments and play their part in meeting the Paris Agreement’s goal of limiting global temperature increase to 1.5°C.
