QIA believes we must prioritise the future health of the planet, as well as economic returns. Our leadership is collaborating internationally to elevate industry standards across environmental social and governance metrics.

In 2017 QIA became one of six founding members of the One Planet Sovereign Wealth Fund Initiative which is building climate change into financial decision making. The One Planet Sovereign Wealth Fund Framework which QIA helped draft was published in July 2018. The framework is the first ever set of guidelines for the Sovereign Wealth Industry to help deliver on climate finance goals.

Back in 2008, QIA through the International forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds, helped draft the Santiago Principles which today set the bar for good governance at the industry level.
