On October 28, 2016 the International Prize for the Best Climate Reporting by Investors was awarded. By leveraging the analysis conducted by Beyond Ratings, MNRA received a special mention for the quality of its reporting and the innovative nature of its approach, particularly for the treatment of sovereign assets.
Organized by the Office of the Commissioner General for Sustainable Development and the 2 ° Investing Initiative, the prize was awarded at a ceremony chaired by Ms. Ségolène Royal at the OECD, which was also attended by Mr. Ángel Gurría, Secretary General of the OECD.
This prize was part of the French energy transition law for green growth (Article 173-VI). This law requires investors, starting from 2017, to publish information on their contribution to climate objectives and financial risks associated with the energy and ecological transition.
The jury was composed of 15 people and 6 international observers divided into 4 colleges: public administrations, parliamentarians, investor groups and NGOs. At the award ceremony, Ms. Ségolène Royal congratulated “the laureates who have boldly applied, and have often made the effort to innovate.”
This project is part of the general objective of mobilizing financial market players in the fight against climate change and, more generally, for the benefit of the energy and ecological transition.
The services of Beyond Ratings allowed MNRA to quickly develop a state-of-the-art analysis of the sovereign part of its investments, both in terms of the coherence of investments with climate objectives, and the exposure of its assets to climate risks. In 2016, Beyond Ratings helped French and foreign institutional investors managing more than 75 billion sovereign assets in assessing the energy and climate challenges of their investment portfolios.
The development of simple, all-encompassing and innovative methods to provide increased appreciation of Sovereign risks is at the heart our business at Beyond Ratings. On the occasion of the Best Climate Reporting Award, we are delighted by MNRA’s success as well as the mobilization of many French and international investors in favour of a better consideration of these issues.
Beyond Ratings is an independent research and financial services company founded in 2014. As a young innovative company, we offer our clients risk analysis, financial engineering and reporting services, and are dedicated to sovereign and similar assets.
