ESG Risk Ratings Licence
An ESG Risk Ratings Licence from Sustainalytics, allows your company to use Sustainalytics’ ESG Risk Rating for various internal and external corporate purposes. As awareness of the materiality of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors has grown, so too has the demand for new uses of ESG data and information to be disclosed beyond just the investor community.
Introduction to Transition Bonds
The green bond market has seen major growth in recent years. There is, however, a strong recognition that achieving international climate goals will require significant reduction of GHG emissions from carbon-intensive industrial activities that to date have not been the focus of green finance and for which low-carbon solutions are generally not yet available at scale due to major technological and/or systemic barriers. Those are commonly referred to as transition sectors.
ESG Voting Policy Overlay
New regulations and stakeholder pressure are creating the need for investors to demonstrate their commitment as responsible owners that view corporate accountability as a means to achieving greater long-term value. In Europe, the Shareholder Rights Directive II requires transparency around voting and engagement and, in North America, voting is considered part of investors’ fiduciary duty with engagement being a natural extension thereof. This underlines the need to align voting and engagement activities.
