The Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) has published a new component for the Paris Aligned Investment Initiative (PAII)’s Net Zero Investment Framework (NZIF), providing guidance on aligning private equity portfolios with net zero that is relevant to both GPs and LPs.

The addition of this new component is part of a strategy of continued expansion of the NZIF, following its initial launch in March 2021. The new component brings the asset classes covered to five: listed equity and corporate fixed income, sovereign bonds, real estate and private equity.
 
The NZIF is used by signatories of the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative and the Paris Aligned Asset Owners, outlining a common set of recommended actions, metrics and methodologies to maximise their contribution to achieving net zero emissions globally by 2050 or sooner.
 
The proposed private equity guidance is now open for public consultation until 27 February 2022, with the final component expected to be published in Q2 2022.
