EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This report, produced by Sustineri and commissioned by ClientEarth, explores current practices by asset owners in addressing climate-related risk in order to establish the standards which are emerging across the market. Market standards are relevant to an assessment of whether asset owners are properly fulfilling their legal duties towards their ultimate beneficiaries and taking reasonable steps to identify and mitigate risk to the performance of their investments. This research is aimed at analysing the existing disclosures on climate-related activities by asset owners to include not only best practices by those considered to be leaders in this sector, but also emerging trends and common practices within the broader investment sector.
