    The Next Frontier in Footprinting: Carbon Accounting for Sovereign Bonds (S&P 500 & DJIA)

    Sovereign bonds remain largely unanalyzed by investors from a carbon risk and reporting perspective. This is despite clear acknowledgement in the Paris Agreement that governments have a critical role in curtailing global warming, and the Financial Stability Board’s warning that climate change could affect all asset classes and the stability of the broader financial system.

    A key obstacle has been defining the appropriate metrics. As sovereign bonds provide capital to national governments, it is a government’s carbon emissions that we are focused on, but opinions vary on the appropriate breadth of ownership and responsibility.
