Action on Climate
Croatan Institute worked with partners to develop a toolkit for endowment and pension plan fiduciaries grappling with taking action on climate change through their investments. Two input meetings, or “charrettes,” were held in New York City and Oakland, California in late 2014. A total of 18 trustees, staff, and fiduciaries from mid-sized institutional investors (including endowments, foundations, religious investors, and Taft-Hartley funds) participated in the charrettes. At these meetings, the project team gathered information from participants about what is important when considering changes to their policies and portfolios. Their feedback shaped the formation of the final toolkit that was published in September 2015.
