ABSTRACT

Climate change mitigation has presented a serious problem for global regulators. An area that is emerging from a collection of legislative initiatives of the European Commission is the role of institutional investors in holding companies accountable for decisions that have a climate change impact. These legislative initiatives are the Revised Shareholder Rights Directive, Disclosures Regulation, Taxonomy Regulation and Revised Benchmarks Regulation. The article analyses each piece of legislation critically and seeks to describe their cumulative effect in terms of what is required of institutional investors. This article argues that these legislative initiatives will, together, create a normative expectation that institutional investors adopt, to a greater extent than has been previously observed, the role of activist with respect to the climate change impacts of investee companies. The article then describes the possibility of enforcement of this normative expectation by non-State actors.

机构投资者作为环保主义者

摘要

缓解气候变化给全球监管者带来了严重的问题。欧盟委员会一系列立法举措中出现的一个领域是机构投资者在促使公司对影响气候变化的决定负责的角色。这些立法举措包括《股东权利指令》,《披露规定》,《分类法》和《基准基准》。本文对每一项立法进行了批判性分析,力图根据机构投资者的要求来描述其累积效果。本文认为,这些立法举措将共同创造机构投资者采用的规范性期望,其程度将比以前观察到的更大,活动家在被投资公司的气候变化影响方面的作用。然后,文章描述了非国家行为者执行这一规范性期望的可能性。
