DescriptionOECD research suggests that evolving ESG ratings and investment practices will need to improve consistency and comparability of metrics and methodologies, particularly in the Environmental pillar, to better capture drivers of financial and environmental materiality. This session will therefore discuss developments in ESG practices and the extent to which they serve as a tool to help investors assess environmental and climate related considerations. Looking ahead, the session will discuss the extent to which other types of investment products, such as those tailored to climate transitions, may provide more targeted tools for investors with the aim to rebalance portfolios away from companies with carbon intensive outputs or supply chains to align with low-carbon economies.
