2017 – Open letter to Green Climate Fund (GCF) board on keeping the fund fossil fuel free

March 2017

“We write to urge you to develop and adopt an investment policy for the treasury of the United Nations Green Climate Fund that maintains its current fossil fuel-free status and is consistent with international best practice for environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards. To that end, in approving a competitive process for the selection of the Permanent Trustee at its 16th meeting next month, the Board should require that the Permanent Trustee be able to implement the GCF’s investment policy.”
