The first step for a financial institution is to develop a meaningful, yet practical sustainable investment policy. The importance of the process and stakeholder engagement required to develop such policy is often overlooked. Top management strategic guidance towards the company goals is the cornerstone of the process, which requires the involvement of multiple departments, such as the investment teams, risk, treasury, legal & compliance, etc. EC&D has developed key components of sustainable investment policies such as the eligibility requirements, MRV requirements, Quality Assurance, E&S screening criteria, etc.
