Climate transition benchmarks have become a focal point for investors looking to integrate climate risks into their portfolios and align them with the climate goals of the Paris Agreement.

Investors and regulators are actively looking to identify SI criteria that can be used to define such benchmarks. Accordingly, the EU Technical Expert Group developed recommendations for minimum benchmark requirements that are aligned with the Paris goals and considered the risk of greenwashing.

This research paper looks at:

  • Addressing the EU’s action plan on sustainable investment
  • Developing a FTSE All-World Paris-aligned Benchmark (PAB) Index
  • Demonstrating the FTSE All-World PAB Index performance
  • Achieving the climate transition objectives with FTSE Russell’s Target Exposure framework
