Eurosif Survey on Climate Data & Indicators

27 October 2022

Are you a portfolio manager integrating climate considerations into your investment strategies? Are you a climate specialist or a sustainability expert working in the financial industry? We want to learn from your experience and expertise!

We invite you to participate in the Eurosif survey on climate data & indicators

What does the survey aim to achieve?

With this survey Eurosif wants to better understand which climate-related information are truly decision-useful for investors and in particular:

  • where investors source climate-related data & indicators, and how they use them in their investment strategies;
  • how reliable are forward-looking indicators, net-zero targets, and climate benchmarks;
  • whether and how policy and regulatory measures could improve the quality and the effectiveness of climate-related data, analytics and investment tools

The results will feed into a report that will be presented to policymakers to advocate for a more effective policy & regulatory framework on climate-related information. This is a critical juncture for the European market to improve the availability and reliability of the data that investors will need to make more sound investment decisions on climate.

Why Eurosif is conducting this survey?

Eurosif wants to feed its policy positions with data-driven analyses derived from the experience and expertise of industry professionals. The results of this survey will contribute to shape Eurosif advocacy activities towards EU and international policy-makers, regulators, and reporting standard-setters.

Why you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to take part in this survey?

The scarcity of reliable data on decarbonisation targets and transition plans is often highlighted by investors as a major obstacle to set transition pathways at portfolio level. Accordingly, the interest in improving climate-related data and indicators is gaining momentum among EU and international policy-makers and regulators. By sharing views on your practices, needs and challenges, you will have a significant opportunity to make the investors’ voice heard in the current policy and regulatory landscape. Eurosif is determined to advocate for the introduction of measures aimed at uplifting the quality and comparability of climate-related data, indicators and investment tools.

Who is in the best position to participate in the survey?

The survey ideally targets portfolio managers, climate specialists/analysts and sustainability experts working at financial institutions and regularly handling climate-related data. Respondents can potentially share the view of their company’s methodological processes and challenges.

How long does it take to complete the survey?

We would kindly ask you to dedicate 30-45 minutes of your time to respond to the questions.
