Green Century Delivers a Message to World Leaders at COP26: Step Up Your Climate Ambitions Now

Media Contact: Andrea Ranger,, 617-482-0800

Boston, October 27, 2021 – As heads of state and environment ministers gather in Glasgow, Scotland for the United Nation’s 26th climate summit (COP26), the rest of the world watches to see what agreements can be struck. Many stakeholders know that the stakes are high – without bold action to cut greenhouse gas emissions, global temperatures will continue to rise and may cause ongoing environmental destruction. 

As the climate summit gets underway, Green Century Capital Management° joins 733 investors, managing more than $52 trillion in assets, to deliver the 2021 Global Investor Statement to Governments on the Climate Crisis to presidents, prime ministers, and heads of states. Our message: adopt more ambitious greenhouse gas reduction targets or you may be missing investment opportunities.

Green Century Shareholder Advocate Andrea Ranger issues the following statement:

“Our letter urges countries to look at emissions reductions as a chance to set a new course. World leaders could invite support for projects that cut their carbon footprints rather than sinking more capital into fuel fossil systems that exacerbate the climate crisis.  Climate change is already impacting our daily lives and without immediate action it could destabilize the global financial system in the not-so-distant future.”

Investors are among the many stakeholders hoping for ambitious climate change commitments as nations gather in Glasgow.
