Asset managers globally are failing to meet climate neutrality targets for 2050, according to a report from the InfluenceMap research programme. Of the world's top 45 asset managers studied, which collectively manage USD72tr, 95% were found to be off track for achieving carbon neutrality by mid-century. The portfolios of these managers are reportedly investing 2.8 times more in fossil fuel companies than in green investments. The study also revealed a significant gap between net-zero commitments and short-term climate action. Only France's Natixis and Britain's Schroders received positive scores for their alignment with carbon neutrality goals. The report highlighted a concerning trend of US asset managers in reducing their climate-aligned investment ambitions.
