Net Zero Endowments Roadmap

IEN's Net Zero Endowments Roadmap is a guide for endowments in making and implementing net zero portfolio commitments. It provides a high-level overview, laying out common steps taken in this process with links to more detailed resources in the field to provide guidance and best practices on each aspect of the net zero journey. Starting with a background of net zero commitments, and continuing on with ways to create a solid foundation for a commitment through mission aligned investing, this resource is designed to demonstrate pathways through which progress towards a net zero commitment can be made, measured, and monitored for success and impact.
