Invesco believes the issues of climate change should be top of the agenda for us as a society and for our clients. As a supporter of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) we are launching our first report on Climate Change.
The report also sets out Invesco’s assessment of a significant part of its listed equities and corporate fixed income holdings in respect of emissions intensity, temperature alignment and climate scenario analysis.
The inaugural environmental, social and governance (ESG) report is divided into three broad sections:
- Invesco’s approach to governance and strategy, including how ESG principles are being integrated across the business, engagement with clients, approach to advocacy and investment solutions
- An analysis of the interaction between climate change and Invesco’s range of equity and bond investments under multiple emissions/temperature rise scenarios.
- An assessment of climate change at the operational level, including metrics covering operational, investment and regulatory risk, and concluding with specific targets going forward
