Review of October 2022

  • October was a quieter month for new announcements, falling between New York Climate Week (in Sept) and COP27 (in Nov).
  • Most notable was the continuing reaction to the suggestion that the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ) has distanced itself from the UN Race to Zero campaign.
  • This has led to a second consecutive decrease in consensus in the ‘Commitments by financial institutions’ guidance area.
  • Other  updates include the Climate Change Committee's report on offsetting, the FCA's consultation on labelling green investment products and guidance on transition plans from a group of NGOs.

July was a quiet month, and hence our consensus ratings in many areas remained relatively unchanged. However, the release for Core Carbon Principles by the ICVCM is a major development.

The governance & infrastructure area saw the greatest change in consensus; despite it decreasing, there were important positive developments, such as the start of implementation of the Paris Agreement’s Article 6.4 credit mechanism.
