Tracking ESG progress
Climate Impact Score
Under LGIM’s Climate Impact Pledge, we have focused our engagement on ‘climate-critical’ sectors which we believe are key to meeting the world’s net-zero emissions challenge. We assess the strength of companies’ climate ambitions and their strategic shift, encouraging them to step up, whilst systematically holding companies accountable through voting sanctions and capital allocation.
We do this by using quantitative and qualitative measures. Drawing on independent data providers and our proprietary climate modelling, we have mapped circa 1,000 companies globally in ‘climate-critical’ sectors against key indicators and assessed them under a ‘traffic light’ system. Companies are thus able to verify their progress directly, whilst also encouraging improvements in the accuracy and availability of climate data in the market. We have also produced guidance around net zero challenges and opportunities in each sector.Open the LGIM Climate Impact Scoring Tool
