March 4, 2021 – In response to growing interest from asset managers, the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF) today published the PCAF Briefing for Asset Managers. The document aims to give asset managers a concise introduction to PCAF and expand on the initiative's relevance to asset managers and significance to the financial industry. While asset managers are its intended audience, the briefing can be equally helpful to anyone wishing to gain a better understanding of PCAF.
To provide even further guidance to asset managers using practical, concrete examples, PCAF held a webinar on 31 March specifically tailored to asset managers. Measuring and disclosing financed emissions: PCAF for Asset Managers featured representatives from asset managers in PCAF (AIMCo, Robeco and Boston Common Asset Management) who shared their experiences in applying the methodology in the Global GHG Accounting and Reporting Standard for the Financial Industry to measure and disclose their financed emissions.
The panel session highlighted the significance of PCAF to asset managers while exploring the ways in which asset managers can engage with data providers and use financed emissions to achieve climate-related business goals.
