Catalyst responds to The Good Economy’s ESG White Paper
Catalyst welcomes the opportunity to comment on The Good Economy’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) white paper . Generally, we welcome this initiative to develop ESG criteria that are credible, consistent and comparable.
We support the approach of:
Using existing standards and information collection requirements
Aligning criteria to requirements that investors will understand
Facilitating housing associations to ‘tell their own stories’ within common touch points
Focussing on the questions that are important, through criteria that add necessary information and are relevant, meaningful and capable of being answered
Establishing core and secondary criteria.
