GHG scopes included:

Scope 1 & 2 are the basis for targets with sufficient coverage to enable measurement of progress towards the targets. Scope 3 data coverage is not sufficient currently to enable target setting or measurement against. That said, where it is available it is measured and reported on internally.


Net Zero Asset Owner Alliance Target Setting Protocol


The IPCC special report on global warming of 1.5°C. 25% reduction by 2025 aligns linearly with the 50% reduction by 2030, i.e. an average of 5% reduction per year (we are not following yearly targets).

Additional information

Proportion of AUM committed:

Asset classes outside of the 2025 NZ AOA guidance will be excluded. Cash and derivatives will also be excluded for the time being. In addition, it will be at the discretion of the client where they hold segregated mandates and so for the time being, we prudently exclude their assets. Finally, there are some assets managed by external managers, which for the time being we will exclude.

Policy on coal and other fossil fuel investments:

We will have divested all companies making more than 5% of their revenue from thermal coal unless they have signed up to Science-Based Targets. This applies to all AI managed funds subject to investor consent & regulatory approval.
