CFA Society New York Asset Owner Series SDG-ESG Infrastructure Investment Framework Conference
31 October 2020 | Virtual Event
During its annual 2019 CFA Climate and ESG Asset Owner Summit, hosted in partnership with Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), a resounding theme was the dearth of information available to assist asset owners measure the impact of their Real Asset portfolios on both ESG and delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s). To address this challenge, the AOAC, approached GRESB, University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) and Africa investor (Ai) as technical partners to work with a high-level ‘Brain Trust’ to investigate the creation of a framework, narrative and benchmark for ASSET OWNERS to MEASURE IMPACT of infrastructure assets on delivery of the SDG’s and ESG, and promote adoption amongst their respective asset owner networks.
This framework is the first output from this effort, representing a framework intended to assist in measuring the contribution to the SDG’s for Infrastructure assets and projects.
