The growth of applications has been accompanied by the proliferation of different levels of criteria reliability and benchmarks used to develop uniform carbon-free rules of the game. Investing according to environmental, social and governance principles (ESG metrics) has become one of the main areas of financial track discussed at recent Conferences of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
