BMO Global Asset Management has engaged with companies for over a decade with the aim of preventing the unmanageable effects of climate change. Since the Paris climate agreement, we have supported the ambition of limiting global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius compared to the pre-industrial emissions baseline, and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Here we set out our climate change engagement framework, and how we translate the ambition of the Paris Agreement into expectations of companies. This engagement forms a key part of our overall response to climate change, which also includes integration into investment analysis, public policy activities and providing specialist investment products.
