Comments from SPP on "Turning the tide" by Swedwatch

  • On the whole we feel it provides a good overview of the challenges facing the financial sector in aligning itself with a sustainable 2 degrees scenario for climate change.

  • On page 5 the report seems to indicate that protecting value is given as the main reason for fund managers not reallocating funds on the level needed. This is not a view we share. At SPP we see long term financial stability and value creation as a reason to make urgent changes rather than a reason not to. 

  • Access to reliable and updated ESG data is a real and pressing problem in our industry. It is not, as seems to be indicated, an excuse SPP uses for not acting on climate change...

  • We think that the report would be even better if there was a summary of constructive initiatives that investors are doing on climate change. There is after all a significant movement in the industry and we feel it is important to support this momentum.
