Introduction and consent

There is growing evidence that climate change threatens the value of investments and the stability of financial systems. This has increased demand internationally for the disclosure of information to enable the risks and opportunities linked to climate change to be factored into investment decisions.

DNA Economics and its partners, Six Capitals ESG Advisory, The Green House, WWF-SA, Vivid Economics, WWF-South Africa and Planetrics have received funding from the UK PACT (Partnering for Accelerated Climate Transitions) programme to support local investment managers to better understand the climate-related financial risks and opportunities they face. The project is being implemented under the guidance of ASISA, Batseta and the JSE.

The project will provide the local asset management industry with the skills and tools to support the analysis and disclosure of climate-related risks and opportunities embedded within their investment portfolios. The project will also quantify the impact that efforts to combat climate change could have on the value of South African listed equities, and will develop a best-practice climate-related financial disclosure example.

Ultimately, the goal is to generate detailed, useful, and timeous information on expected climate-related financial impacts to enable asset manager and asset owners to make informed investment decisions. All project information, tools, guides, templates etc will be open source and publicly available. For more information about the project and its outputs, please see 

This survey aims to understand the needs of the asset management industry to allow useful training, tools and support to be provided. Kindly note that you can exit and continue the survey at a later stage. Survey Monkey will automatically save your responses, and you can resume from where you left off provided you use the same device.

Your time is appreciated, and your insights will be critical to achieving this goal.
