The goal of this project is to help promote a large-scale decarbonization of passively held capital in U.S. retirement plans. The World Resources Institute aims to increase the capacity and willingness of carefully selected public and private retirement plans to invest in high-quality, Paris Climate Agreement-aligned, ESG passive equity products. In the case of defined contribution plans, the aim is for plans to incorporate these product(s) into default options. This would capitalize on the power of the default option to drive capital toward sustainable investments and harness the growing desire of thousands of U.S. workers to invest their retirement funds in sustainable options.
