11/18/2021 | 07:02am EST

WINNIPEG, MB, Nov. 18, 2021 /CNW/ - IGM Financial Inc. (IGM ) (TSX: IGM) today officially introduced its climate commitments, in support of the global climate momentum achieved during COP26.

Through IGM's wealth and asset management businesses (IG Wealth Management, Investment Planning Counsel and Mackenzie Investments) the company plays a critical role in the global transition to a low-carbon economy. IGM has detailed its climate commitments in a position statement on the company's website, with a focus on three key areas:

  1. Investing in a greener, climate resilient economy – Our investment processes and products give us the opportunity to manage climate risks and create innovative solutions to our ongoing climate issues.
  2. Collaborating and engaging to help shape the global transition – We play a vital role in bringing climate-smart investment advice and solutions to clients, helping companies adapt, and participating in industry and policy advancements.
  3. Demonstrating alignment through our corporate actions – We will hold ourselves to a similar standard that we expect from the companies we invest in and empower our employees to stand behind our commitments.

"As a leading Canadian financial services organization and an allocator of capital worldwide, we have a responsibility to not just advocate, but to act on the changes we want to see in the world," said James O'Sullivan, President and CEO, IGM Financial Inc. "We recognize that communities and companies will be impacted in different ways by the climate transition. We support an approach that is fair and equitable for all, while achieving the global goal of a net zero future by 2050." 

Some of our recent climate-related milestones are outlined below: 

  • IG Wealth Management and Mackenzie Investments became founding signatories to the Canadian Investor Statement on Climate Change, calling for increased accountability in the private sector.
  • IG Wealth Management launched the IG Climate Action Portfolios, a suite of four managed solutions which aim to provide clients with the opportunity to support and benefit from the global transition to net zero emissions.
  • Mackenzie Investments became a signatory to the Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative, joining 220 global asset managers committed to supporting the goal of net zero emissions.
  • Mackenzie acquired Greenchip Financial Corp., a leading investment boutique focused on thematic investing to combat climate change.
