SMI Introduces Transition Framework to Mobilise Capital

The Sustainable Markets Initiative’s (SMI) Asset Manager and Asset Owner (AMAO) Taskforce has launched a new Transition Categorisation Framework. The framework looks to mobilise investment capital, as well as support industry in transitioning to net zero. The framework’s objective is to categorise assets that fulfil the objectives for a pathway to a net zero transition – at both a company and a project level – and ensure that investors are not simply disinvesting from the more difficult sectors, particularly in emerging economies. The framework identifies five categories of transition assets, four of which qualify as Paris-climate agreement aligned, with the categorisation allowing investment into sectors and regions playing key roles in the net zero transition. Hendrik du Toit, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Ninety One, and Sustainable Markets Initiative and AMAO Task Force member, said: “We must accelerate the path to net zero through investment in climate resilience solutions, innovation, clean technologies and by mobilising capital to finance more sustainable investment into the transition.”
