Instruments to help you navigate the sustainable finance journey.

Take Action – Initiatives, Frameworks, Standards & Tools

What are these instruments?

Initiatives, Frameworks, Standards and Tools are different instruments available for asset managers, asset owners, financial institutions and other financial actors. Some of them provide collaborative support and guidance to facilitate the integration of Environmental, Social and Governance criteria across the organisation and the investment process. Others help measure and report using science-based data. The chart below shows how to use these instruments.

How and when can these instruments be used?

Each instrument has its own purpose and objectives. Each targets a specific area of an organisation or a precise stage of an investment decision process.  Therefore, they are complementary and can be used simultaneously. Financial players can decide to commit to and/or use more than one of these instruments, based on their size, strategy or sustainability objectives.

The chart below shows where each instrument can be used in an organisation.
