What is SDG impact analysis for financial products?
We can help you quantify and verify the positive and negative contributions of projects and investments towards the environmental SDGs at a goal and indicator level.
Impacts may then be incorporated into financial products, such as, investment funds, project finance, bonds and loans.
How can South Pole help?
We specialise in working with banks and managers, in the following areas:
- Green and sustainability bond and loan impact and verification
- Transition bond and loan impact and verification
- SDG-aligned public and private investment funds, for instance, for asset managers, private equity or pension schemes
After obtaining information from you on the sustainable finance product areas you wish to be analysed for SDG impacts, we provide a calculation approach, including the potential use of estimates and assumptions employed. After the calculation of the SDG impacts using our pre-agreed approach, we will provide a report which includes quantitative and qualitative information as well as any methodological information. The report can be integrated with your own communications or published separately if there are annual reporting requirements for your sustainable finance products.
