Sitra Case Study
Building Support For Climate Impact Screening
Goal: To conduct a climate impact assessment of companies listed on Nasdaq Helsinki and discuss developments in the climate impact of investments with relevant stakeholders in the financial sector in Finland as part of its public mandate to drive the development of Finland and of the Finnish financial industry.
Challenge: Convincing a coalition of investors to back a climate impact screening of the companies listed on the Finnish stock exchange and launch the results for Finnish investors, the Finnish public and politics.
Solution: Through a combination of analysis, capacity building, and outreach support, South Pole helped Sitra raise awareness and educate Finnish investors, media, politics and general public. This included preparing a Climate Impact Report for Sitra including a carbon footprint analysis, fossil fuel analysis, utility analysis, and a forward-looking analysis.
