Beyond Net Zero: How to Mobilize Passive Investing Towards Paris Alignment With a Focus on the United States

6 July 2022

Summary

This paper provides a comprehensive and evolving framework for Paris-aligned passive investing, developed through expert consultations, using existing Paris Agreement-related frameworks, taxonomies, data sources, and principles. The framework is then used to analyze existing popular US sustainable funds and EU Paris-Aligned Benchmark funds to see how well they fulfill the criteria, revealing considerable deficiencies in portfolio construction across the board.
