As an active member of Climate Action 100+, Mercy Investment Services has joined more than 300 fellow investors working to engage 100 of the world’s largest corporate greenhouse gas emitters, accounting for two-thirds of global emissions, to curb emissions, strengthen climate-related disclosures and improve governance on climate change. Investors designed Climate Action 100+ to implement their commitment to care for the Earth detailed in the

Global Investor Statement on Climate Change.

Climate Action 100+ has seen significant positive response from several companies, including Shell, Glencore, BP and Total. Most recently, a Climate Action 100+ engagement with Equinor (formerly Statoil) led the European oil and gas company to commit to align its business activities with the Paris Agreement goals.

Mercy Investment Services, which leads seven Climate Action 100+ engagements and participates in another eight, will continue to work with its fellow Climate Action 100+ investors to engage these companies and monitor their compliance with the pledges they have made.
