DescriptionJ.P. Morgan is a global leader in financial services, offering solutions to the world's most important corporations, governments and institutions in more than 100 countries. As a firm, we are committed to aligning key sectors of our financing portfolio with the goals of the Paris Agreement. In this pursuit, we have developed Carbon CompassSM – our methodology for measuring the GHG emissions of our clients and setting Paris-aligned targets to reduce the carbon intensity of our sector portfolios over time. Further, J.P. Morgan aims to facilitate more than $2.5 trillion over the next 10 years to address climate change and contribute to sustainable development, including $1 trillion for green initiatives. Across the global enterprise, J.P. Morgan has also set a number of targets to drive progress on operational sustainability, including our carbon neutral commitment across our operations.ApproachWe leverage our award-winning global research platform to advance sustainability and ESG investment strategies. In collaboration with our global sector analysts, we are building an ESG research product and consultancy service that will serve as a key partner for investors looking to differentiate themselves in their investment process. Central to this, J.P. Morgan’s Global Index Research Group is responsible for creating and managing the J.P. Morgan ESG (JESG) suite of indices. Launched in April 2018 across our Emerging Market suite of indices, the JESG indices are designed to provide fixed income investors with a foundational framework to navigate and incorporate ESG discipline within the investment process, regardless of where they are in their ESG journey. Since then, the JESG index suite has expanded to cover a broad range of asset classes across emerging and developed market credit and rates, and the sustainable bond market, with more than $35 billion in assets benchmarked to the JESG indices.
