Sustainable Investing is increasingly facing criticism from different sides such as regulators, clients and market observers. To address greenwashing allegations, SSF has decided to better differentiate between different levels of sustainability and contributions to positive change. For this purpose, we have included a short additional section on ESG/Impact Performance measurement for funds and mandates. Please take note of these new sections (3.5 and 4.5) and help us gain an encompassing picture by filling these sections out for relevant assets. In compensation, the separate section on impact was shortened and integrated in the fund/mandate sheet and a number of questions in the section “special topics” were cancelled.
This new section was conceptualised together with our collaboration partners, the Sustainable Finance Research Group, University of Hamburg, and the Advanced Impact Research GmbH, who together with Eurosif published a whitepaper in July 2022 on a new classification scheme for Sustainable Investments. Through this collaboration and the resulting continued work with Professor Timo Busch, the SSF Market Study serves as a pilot study to test the concept presented in this paper.
