Document summary

In this timely report, the authors address the EU’s action plan on sustainable investment, outlining a FTSE All-World Paris-aligned Benchmark (PAB) Index. The benchmark demonstrated is designed to satisfy the requirements for an EU PAB, as laid out by the EU Technical Expert Group (TEG) Report. The framework employed is general, transparent and robust, providing the foundation for regional and country level benchmarks and can be readily extended to meet the requirements for Climate Transition Benchmarks (CTB) that are also detailed in the TEG Report.
