Net Zero Bondholder Stewardship Guidance Launched  

The Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) has published bondholder climate stewardship guidance. The guidance, developed by IIGCC’s Bondholder Stewardship Working Group, provides advice on stewardship across different forms of corporate debt, including investment grade, high yield, labelled bonds, private companies issuing public bonds, securitised issuances and emerging markets. It also addresses stewardship across the debt ecosystem, including banks, credit ratings agencies, index providers, industry bodies and regulators. Chandra Gopinathan, Senior Investment Manager, Railpen, and Chair of the Bondholder Stewardship Working Group, said: “Bondholders fund the majority of a company’s capital but suffer from a perception of poor stewardship powers and a fragmented ecosystem. The guidance is a very practical resource and a first step to provide a structured stepwise approach to bondholder stewardship with case studies and aggregated insights and perspectives from leading investors. Following this guidance, I look forward to progressing the next workstream where we consider financing structures and frameworks for new issuances.”
