Arabesque Asset Management

Our engagement efforts for

Emissions Disclosure in the EU Tech Sector

Rationale

Humans’ role in climate warming is ”unequivocal”, stated the latest IPCC report, confirming what many suspected. The planet is getting warmer, and the primary drivers of the global temperature rise are greenhouse gases (GHGs). Arabesque Asset Management is of the opinion that comprehensive disclosures of GHG emissions, as outlined in the GHG Protocol, are critical to accurately understand and manage risk, differentiating between leaders and laggards of climate action.

We invite both investors and corporates to show your support by signing engagement letters to these six companies encouraging them to improve their climate data disclosure.

How did we identify the companies?

The Technology sector accounts for 2 – 3% of global GHG emissions and with a technology company within our Group, we seek to shed light on this sector which is often overlooked in the emissions discussion. Based on Arabesque S-Ray Temperature Score, we identified six companies in the Technology sector with whom we wish to engage in a constructive dialogue around improved disclosures. These companies have come far in their reporting and they are missing just a few steps to receive Temperature Score. The companies are: SAP SE, SimCorp SE, Scout24, AMS, Barco NV and Melexis NV.
