RESPOND (Resilient and Sustainable Portfolios that Protect Nature and Drive Decarbonisation) is an interactive online tool developed by WWF-Singapore which reviews Asset Managers’ (AM) public disclosures about their implementation of Responsible Investment (RI). The tool is based on a WWF framework (see the appendix section of the report if you want to learn more about the full framework) that describes a science-based, holistic approach to RI for AMs. This framework –aligned with the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) recommendations and the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) – consists of six pillars, 14 indicators and 95 sub-indicators. In addition to including sub-indicators pertaining to overall Environmental Social Governance integration and internal sustainability governance, the framework includes issue-specific sub-indicators focusing on deforestation, biodiversity loss, climate change, water risk, ocean sustainability as well as human and labour rights.
