Catalyst welcomes the opportunity to comment on The Good Economy’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) white paper . Generally, we welcome this initiative to develop ESG criteria that are credible, consistent and comparable.

We support the approach of:

  • Using existing standards and information collection requirements
  • Aligning criteria to requirements that investors will understand
  • Facilitating housing associations to ‘tell their own stories’ within common touch points
  • Focussing on the questions that are important, through criteria that add necessary information and are relevant, meaningful and capable of being answered
  • Establishing core and secondary criteria.
