Want to become an ESG pioneer?
Investors and housing associations are invited to apply to become "early adopters" of ESG criteria currently being finalised in a bid to unlock significant investment into the social housing sector.
The organisations would be required to test out sector specific ESG reporting standards under the guidance of the ESG Social Housing Working Group, which published its draft white paper in May. The proposed ESG approach is currently going through a period of public consultation and feedback.
This is an exciting opportunity for your organisation to be among a small group of pioneers in what is believed to be the first ESG reporting standard to have widespread adoption in a sector in the UK. By establishing a credible, meaningful and comparable set of ESG criteria, it is hoped the sector can deliver an approach to ESG reporting which can be adopted by key stakeholders, including lenders, investors, regulatory bodies and government.
If would like further information or would like to express an interest in becoming an early adopter, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
