Sustainable Investment and ESG Scoring

Growing interest in sustainable investment represents a significant opportunity to direct new pools of capital into the renewable energy sector. However, methodologies for Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) scoring – an important metric many investors use to identify sustainable companies to invest in – often do not reflect the true value of renewable energy use and investment. ACORE works with its members to increase standardization, transparency and use of material indicators in ESG disclosure and scoring processes through specific recommendations and outreach to the ESG community.
