SBTi Case study - Schroders
The global asset management firm committed to set science-based targets in 2021 and was one of the first financial institutions to have its targets validated by the SBTi.
Our impact analysis of climate change models that long-run returns may be materially different when the impact of climate change is taken into account. We believe that every economy, industry and company will need to plot a net-zero path to remain competitive. As such, we aspire to become one of the world’s leading investment companies with sustainability at our core. We are proud to have become the largest asset manager by AUM to have its targets validated by the SBTi.
The SBTi’s Financial Institutions framework has become a familiar document to many of us within Schroders. It provides great detail and precision to determine both the assets in scope for an organization like ours, as well as methodology details that are critical to ensuring comparability across users.
