GFANZ report provides a clear framework to help financial institutions navigate net zero portfolio methodologies

By Helen Bradley
1st November 2022

Ahead of COP27, Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ) has issued a report on  Measuring Portfolio Alignment for financial institutions, providing a clear framework to help FIs navigate net zero portfolio methodologies. Our Director of Financial Services, Caroline Clarke explains the importance of this report:

”GFANZ’s report on Measuring Portfolio Alignment for financial institutions is a timely and valuable resource as political, business and financial leaders gather for COP27 in Egypt.

It provides a clear framework to help financial institutions understand, critically appraise and ultimately select between the varied methodologies for measuring net-zero portfolio alignment that co-exist currently in the market.

At a time when the debate around corporate greenwashing remains active it also provides clear guidance on how the credibility of portfolio companies’ decarbonisation plans should be assessed through a review of both a company’s past track record, and a critical assessment of the quality of any forward looking transition plan.

GFANZ is right to highlight that a credible transition plan must include; evidence of executive oversight, remuneration linked to decarbonisation, independently validated short and long term science-based targets, and clarity on funding channel and CAPEX plans. By pushing portfolio companies to deliver transition plans that meet these standards financial institutions can positively impact real-economy decarbonisation.”
