IEMA Provides comments on new BSI standard on responsible and sustainable investment management

In December 2019 BSI opened the draft Publicly Available Specification (PAS) 7341 on responsible and sustainable investment management for public comment by stakeholders. Following engagement with IEMA members, including a workshop with the IEMA GESA Group and the IEMA Fellows Working Group on Sustainable Finance, IEMA submitted its comments to BSI in March. Overall, IEMA welcomes the development of PAS 7341. As the second PAS in a series within BSI’s Sustainable Finance Standardization Programme, this PAS comes at a critical time when there is a need to ensure that the financial sector is better aligned towards tackling critical climate change and environmental challenges. Commenting on the draft, IEMA called for tighter drafting that includes additional focus on issues that are directly relevant to sustainable or responsible investment management, refining definitions for key concepts such as additionality and suggested new definition on issues such as stranded assets and divestment.
