Responsible Investment

The financial industry has a critical role to play in the transition to a more equitable and sustainable society and the shift to a decarbonised future. As momentum rapidly increases toward a focus on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), organisations embracing the principles and frameworks of responsible investment such as the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF) will be the leaders of the future.

Our team of experts deliver tailored responsible investment services. These include identifying, calculating and transparently reporting emissions associated with financed investments and help facilitating the shift to carbon neutrality. We also provide assistance with reporting to frameworks such as the Task Force on Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and support and guidance for the risks and opportunities in investment strategies.

Carbon Accounting for Investments - PCAF

Financial institutions have an important role to play in the global transition to a low carbon economy. Australian financial institutions are increasingly mobilising to better understand not only emissions under direct control of the business, but also emissions associated with the investments and portfolio of assets under finance, or ‘financed emissions’. The flow-on impact on downstream asset owners and operators as financial institutions mature in their understanding of its financed emissions can be significant. The Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF) released the Global Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Accounting and Reporting Standard for the Financial Industry – the first and only of its kind providing robust accounting tools for financed emissions, backed by the GHG Protocol. We help financial institutions take a leading role towards responsible investment, to identify, calculate and transparently report on emissions associated with financed investments, based on the PCAF framework and industry best practice.

ESG Frameworks

Financial institutions are increasingly recognising their responsibilities as ethical and social investors, and ensuring Environmental, Social and Corporate governance (ESG) values are reflected in investment decisions. Globally, socially responsible investment that considers ESG factors in portfolio selection and management now stands at over US$30 trillion. Our team are uniquely positioned with deep expertise that spans environmental and social governance. We are able to support financial institutions to create ESG insights reports on downstream financed assets, develop roadmaps to identify and manage ESG risk, support and guide reporting against key ESG risk areas and reduce the emissions intensity of the portfolio, while supporting financial investment objectives.

Climate Active Certification for the Finance Industry

The leading carbon neutral certification program in Australia is the Australian Government’s Climate Active Carbon Neutral Program, which requires entities to calculate, reduce, offset, audit and report on emissions based on international standards tailored to Australia.

We have one of the largest teams of qualified Climate Active Consultants in Australia, who undertake technical assessments, and conduct third party validation for carbon neutral certification against Climate Active. Our team is adept at navigating the Climate Active process for the finance industry, having worked with some of the most well-known Australian financial institutions and investors to successfully achieve certified carbon neutrality.
