In the latest edition of the SustainaWeekly, we start by setting out some of the key results of the third report in the IPCC trilogy.
The IPCC once again made a call for action and underlined that the window is closing to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees. However, the latest report stands out in that the IPCC also analyses mitigation options, as well the cost of various options.
We go on to show that better ESG risk scores lead to relatively lower funding costs for financial institution issuers.
Furthermore, we looked into whether SBTi validation lowers greeniums in the green bond market, but we found no evidence of that.
Finally, we look at announcements from the German and UK governments, which are the latest to step up their renewable energy ambitions.
