Our asset classes under management span Listed Equities, Corporate Bonds, Sovereign Bonds, mortgage bonds, alternative investments (infrastructure, private equity, private credit, forestry) and real estate investments.
Under the current SBTi FI Near Term Framework (described in the Financial Sector Science-based Targets Guidance), it seems it would be OK to, e.g., submit a “Own operations” target, a Portfolio Coverage target for our Listed Equities and Corporate Bonds, and a Sectorial Decarbonisation Approach (SDA) target for our direct Real Estate investments for official validation by the SBTi. And then develop targets for other asset classes at later stages.
→ Is this a correct reading of the current requirements in the SBTi Near-Term Framework? If so, will this also be the case in the updated SBTi FI Near-Term Framework or will this framework change materially?
