Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA)
The Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) is a sustainability benchmark provided by S&P Global. Over 11,000 companies participated in 2022, drawn from the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), the S&P ESG Index series, and a wider universe of companies that are of interest to the investment community. The assessment methodology is comprehensive, evidence-based, and industry-specific, to produce scores which are trusted and meaningful across investment sectors.
EVORA recommends that companies use participation in the CSA to guide internal and external communication on their ESG strategy. Our guide takes you through what CSA is, how you can participate, and why it is useful for organisations.
The Principles for Responsible Investment Initiative (PRI) is a reporting framework that helps promote transparency and disclosure in the global portfolios of asset owners and their investment managers.
Backed by The United Nations and developed by investors, for investors, the PRI puts six Principles for Responsible Investment into practice. Signatories are encouraged to take environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues into account within the investment process and disclose their own performance.
EVORA has deep experience in both creating robust Responsible Investment strategies and frameworks as well as on the ground expertise in the implementation of these, and reporting on their results.
We are already working with many leading investment firms across a wide of sectors, including private equity, institutional investors and fund-of-fund managers. Our PRI and GRESB reporting services, underpinned by our in-house software solution SIERA, provide best-in-class solutions across the property and infrastructure life cycles which focus on driving value from demonstrable ESG performance.
EVORA Global is a proud PRI signatory having publicly demonstrated our commitment to responsible investment.
Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR)
The new European regulation covering sustainability-related disclosures in the financial services sector (or SFDR for short) introduces a number of obligations to real estate and real asset fund managers. These obligations kick in from 10 March 2021, and the European Commission has indicated that financial market participants should work to comply.
EVORA recommends that organisations adopt a pragmatic approach to compliance. Obligated businesses should work to develop statements with supporting documentation, that are aligned, as best as possible – now. Documentation will need to be kept under review, especially when further guidance is published. EVORA can support organisations wishing to establish compliance plans.
Our short guide summarises requirements in as simple terms as possible (avoiding use of complex legal language used in the regulation itself).
