Initiatives, Frameworks, Standards & Tools

A comprehensive selection of what’s available for you.

What are these instruments?
Initiatives, Frameworks, Standards and Tools are different instruments available for assets managers, financial institutions or funds to help them navigate the sustainable finance path, as the graph below covers. They provide collaborative support, guidance and measurement directions to facilitate the integration of Environmental, Social and Governance criteria into the business structures and the investment discussions. Complementarily, some of them help understand and measure the impact.
How and when can these instruments be used?

Each of them covers a distinct purpose and objectives; in this respect, they are used at a different stage of the business process or the investment decision.  However, these instruments can be applied simultaneously and are complementary. Financial players might follow and commit to more than one based on their size, strategy or objectives.

The chart below shows when and for which reason to apply each of them.
