First practices

Carbon bubble buzz

Working group
on mandatory
labeling (ADEME)

Mandatory disclosure introduce in governmental roundtable
MPs introduced an amendment
1. Companies will have to disclose in their annual report:
the impact of their activities on climate change, including sold product and services
their exposure to financial risks related to climate change,
their actions to mitigate them through a low carbon strategy.

2. The government will report to the Parliament on the implementation of a climate-related risk stress-test of the financial sector (to be submitted by December 2016).
3. Institutional investors should disclose in their annual report and communication to beneficiaries,
how ESG criteria are taken into account in their investment policy, and the measure to finance the
transition to a low carbon and green economy. A decree will set the format.
The investors will disclosure how they take into account the risks related to climate change, including:

1. Reporting the GHG emissions associated with the assets owned;
2. The contribution to the international climate target;
3. The contribution to the transition to goals related to a low-carbon and green economy (France).

The decree will define indicative targets by sector and type of investment, in line with the national low carbon strategy. If the target is not met, the investor will have to justify their under-performance.

The data providers apply a standard externally developed
No comparability
Creation of competitive advantage by the regulator
Data providers compete

Short term horizons
= long term risks not material
