Climate bond standards aim to attract institutional investors

first_img“These new rules help investors identify green bonds that make a difference from paler green bonds, where the ambition levels are too low to make a real contribution to tackling climate change,” he added.Hermes Real Estate’s head of responsible property investment Tatiana Bosteels, also chair of the Property Working Group of the Institutional Investor Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) said there was a “huge opportunity” to unlock the potential for energy efficiency within the real estate market.“But to do this effectively and at scale will require more confidence in the tools, standards and models available to measure green buildings and their financial performance.”The 16-strong working group includes a representative from the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre; Brian Rice, lead investment officer in the corporate governance department of the $183bn (€133bn) California State Teachers’ Retirement System; and Simon Brooker, executive director at Australia’s state-backed Clean Energy Finance Corporation.It said it imagined climate bond opportunities would stem from green mortgage-backed securities in countries where building codes met the requirement of the standard, but also from opportunities to finance improvements within the existing stock as long as these would achieve a 50% or higher emissions reduction.Kidney added: “In the long run, we expect green property and urban improvement bonds to be more than 50% of the green bonds market.“But this will depend on confidence among investors that the buildings are making a genuine contribution to the transition to a green economy we need to head off catastrophic climate change.”The standards will now be put out to consultation and then submitted to the Climate Bond Standards Board for confirmation.The working group cited New York, Toronto, Tokyo, Sydney and London as cities targeted for an initial rollout of the standard due to the high volume of property already within the top percentile.A number of pension funds have committed to reducing the carbon footprint of buildings, with the UK’s Environment Agency Pension Fund and the Clwyd local authority scheme last year investing in the Threadneedle Low-Carbon Workplace Trust.,WebsitesWe are not responsible for the content of external sitesLink to public consultation on climate bond standards Climate bonds backed by property should be barred from drawing returns from more than four-fifths of the real estate market, according to draft standards.The Climate Bonds Green Property Working Group has proposed that buildings used for Climate Bonds should be within the top 15% of their regional market and able to achieve “deep cuts” to carbon emissions.The standards – covering commercial and residential property, as well mortgage-backed securities and finance schemes that would reduce emissions within buildings – aim to increase the scale of all green property initiatives to attract institutional investors “needed to drive significant improvements in the building environment”, the draft said.Sean Kidney, chief executive of the not-for-profit Climate Bond Initiative, said the cuts to a property’s emissions were needed if “catastrophic” climate change were to be avoided.last_img read more

Jeremy Woolfe: In Brussels, tomorrow never happens

first_imgThe authority, the Paris-based European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), says it needs an extra year. Otherwise, it cannot achieve spelling out highly complex legislative details – the flesh on the bone of the basic package. ESMA has to produce both the necessary regulatory technical standards (RTS) and the implementing technical standards (ITS). This is necessary to enable fund management interests, including pension funds, to set up compliance systems in time for the implementation deadline.The present situation? Pretty clearly revealed in Brussels is that the situation is, simply, “confusion”. The European Parliament has yet to agree to a new programme. Delay for a year acceptable? Delay to be agreed by a period yet to be set? No delay at all? Commentary is varied.One qualified bystander, Finance Watch, an NGO, has it officially that “MEPs have agreed there is no need to delay the entire package … the entire package should start to apply as planned, on 3 January 2017”.Conversely, MEP Kay Swinburne appears to accept the delay, possibly of a year. At a Parliamentary committee’s “roasting”, but politely called a “public exchange of views”, the British Conservative stated: “I would prefer us to do it correctly, even if it takes longer.” She is seeking a better model for “the proposed changes to our capital markets”. In fact, she advocates a list of changes.Sheenagh Gordon-Hart, formerly of JP Morgan and now of 2020 Regulatory Consulting, tells IPE: “We just have to hope the Commission comes up with a sensible [time] framework.”Financial regulation expert and former regulator Elizabeth Todd at law firm Pinsent Masons said a substantial postponement was unlikely, adding: “What should firms do with this conundrum?” The investment industry, she says, should do what it reasonably can before 3 January 2017, including anticipating any necessary IT systems changes arising as a result of new reporting requirements.She adds: “We should not expect any changes to agreed policy positions.” It appears any delay would be primarily for the purposes of allowing national regulators and companies to cope with the impact of regulatory change to their systems.Todd concludes: “Sitting back and waiting for more certainty on delay is not an option. This is now a clear message from the FCA”.Another commentator raises the spectre that parts of the financial services industry may, actually, be happy about any delay. A muffled giggle in some quarters? Overall, what’s at stake? Obviously, a lot. To use words from Ernst & Young, the Directive “will bring about fundamental changes to distribution of wealth and asset management products and services in the EU”.For instance, it will set up an EU-wide ban on independent financial advisers or discretionary portfolio managers accepting or retaining payments/inducements. Among other upgrades, it would, says the Big Four firm, apply stricter controls on algorithmic trading, and open non-discriminatory access to trading venues and central counterparties. Consternation is rife as the European Commission delays new financial rules and regulations, writes Jeremy WoolfeDelays to new financial rules and regulations from Brussels are hardly something new. Being on time would seem to be the exception.  Blame for the notoriety lands on different targets. Perhaps the European Parliament?  More likely in gatherings of member state representations. Or, to be safe, pin the blame on rogue-ish lobbyists! But probable delays caused by the European Commission itself, together with its affiliated authorities? Never!But now it’s happened. And to MiFID II, the revised Markets in Financial Instruments Directive, the cornerstone of building towards a more efficient, safer financial sector. Europe’s most far-reaching securities reform to date comprises a package laboriously put together in response to the 2009 Pittsburgh G20 meeting, in response to the 2007-08 crisis. The Directive was finally endorsed by the EU leaders in April 2014. It was to be transposed into national legislations by July 2016 and be in force by 3 January 2017. In August 2015, the Commission ruled out notions of delay. Now, it is considering requests for delay.Hardly surprisingly, consternation in Brussels is rife. The predicament has arisen simply because there are insufficient resources in the authority charged with the task of writing a mountain of pages of interpretative “delegated acts” to the package.last_img read more

Most city fires due to power pilfering – BFP

first_imgGUTTED BY FIRE. Firefighters spray with water a fire-hit house in Barangay Concepcion, Iloilo City over the weekend. According to the Bureau of Fire Protection, most fire occurrences in the city are due to illegal electricity connections. IAN PAUL CORDERO/PN As to electric posts catching fire,Regencia said BFP would not be quick to blame Panay Electric Co. (PECO). ILOILO City – Most fire occurrences inthis city were due to illegal electricity connections, according to the Bureauof Fire Protection (BFP). Thus the best way to avoid fire is not to engage inpower pilfering, stressed City Fire Marshal Christopher Regencia. He was referring to the fire that hitZamora Extension, Barangay Concepcion, City Proper over the weekend – one offour fire incidences in the city within 24 hours between Oct. 19 and Oct. 20. Republic ActNo. 7832 is the law penalizing the pilferage of electricity. All information will be treatedconfidential, according to PECO administrative manager Marcelo Cacho in astatement. Under Section 2 (illegal use ofelectricity), it is unlawful for any person, whether natural orjuridical, public or private, to: (c) tamper, install or use a tamperedelectrical meter, jumper, current reversing transformer, shorting or shuntingwire, loop connection or any other device which interferes with the proper oraccurate registry or metering of electric current or otherwise results in itsdiversion in a manner whereby electricity is stolen or wasted The fire could be due to multipleillegal connections, wayward vegetation, and even the incorrect bundling ofcables by telecommunications companies that also use the electric posts, saidRegencia. Neighbors were covering up for them,he lamented. (a) tap, make or cause to be made anyconnection with overhead lines, service drops, or other electric service wires,without previous authority or consent of the private electric utility or ruralelectric cooperative concerned (b) tap, make or cause to be made anyconnection to the existing electric service facilities of any duly registeredconsumer without the latter’s or the electric utility’s consent or authority “Our men discovered marami silang wiring sa loob ng bahay…naputol ang wiring. Kung wala kasing dumadaloy na kuryente,hindi ‘yan mapuputol,” said Regencia. Regencia made a broad appeal to cityresidents – avoid illegal electricity connections and secure power connectionsthe legal way. PECO also reminded telcos using itsposts to coordinate with the power distributor when bundling cables. For its part, PECO pleaded to powerconsumers to alert its office or the police should they spot jumpers onelectric posts, or illegal connections. BFP would like to prosecute those withillegal electricity connections. However, according to Regencia, they could notget witnesses. Many fire victims would insist to BFPinvestigators they did not even have electricity, said Regencia, but physicalevidence would show otherwise. Aside from the fire that hit ZamoraExtension, Barangay Concepcion, City Proper, the three other fires were atBarangay South Fundidor Molo district; near the Land Transportation Office inBarangay Tabuc Suba, Jaro district; and at Barangay Sto.

If you want to reduce the gap with Juventus you have to be strong on the pitch but above all off it.” Di Canio believes Conte’s comments could end up costing him his position, as he added: “Yesterday was something very serious. I don’t know why Antonio said those words, but even if he were to stay at Inter, the scar will remain and the difficulties will come out again.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Antonio Conte wouldn’t want Lionel Messi at Inter, according to Paolo Di Canio, who thinks the Barcelona superstar’s profile would see him become bigger than the club. Messi’s future at Camp Nou has been the subject of much speculation throughout the turbulent 2019-20 campaign. The Argentine only has one year left to run on his current contract and has been strongly linked with a move away from Catalonia in recent months. Inter has been mooted as a possible next destination for the six-time Ballon d’Or winner, but Conte dismissed the notion of a possible transfer after the 2-0 win over Atalanta on Sunday. Quizzed on a potential move for Messi, the 51-year-old head coach told reporters: “Look, only I know what I had to do to get [Romelu] Lukaku. Trust me, at the end of the season we will make evaluations.” Former Italy international Di Canio says that even if it were possible for Inter to bring in the Barca talisman, Conte would oppose a deal due to the attention that would come with such a huge signing. “If Inter really decided to go for Messi and had already told him that they will do everything to take him, are you sure that Conte would like Messi at Inter? I say no,” the ex-Lazio and Juventus striker told Sky Sports.Advertisementcenter_img Loading… last_img read more
