While we wait for next week’s big scientific reveal, this week saw the first trading of Nature-Based Global Emission Offset (N-GEO) futures. Meanwhile, we took a closer look at the ESG expansion of global asset managers towards Asia. “We are seeing exponential demands from our Asia clients for sustainable investing advice and solutions,” Nayan Patel, CEO of Robeco Singapore, told us.
Also this week, we found out that Fidelity International joined the growing ranks of net-zero committers and BlackRock added two new funds to its Paris-Aligned ETF range while Mirova appointed Nathalie Wallace as its new Head of ESG Strategy & Development.
Last but not least, Desiree Fixler, previously Group Sustainability Officer at DWS for only 6 months, accused her ex-employer of having grossly misstated its level of ESG integration in a written statement to the Wall Street Journal.
