JPMorgan Chase & Co. is voluntarily complying with new European Union sustainability disclosure regulations. The firm issued a principal adverse impact (PAI) statement, which provides a set of metrics to help clients compare asset managers based on negative ESG impact. In doing so, JPMorgan provided more useful information to investors than peers including Vanguard and State Street. The world’s largest fossil fuel financier taking this action is a strong signal that European climate regulations have teeth. The case for equivalent reporting standards in the U.S. will only grow as more asset managers follow suit.

  • Gil McGowan quoted a tweet: If saving humanity from extinction isn’t enough to motivate you to support action on climate change, how about this? Property losses associated with climate change threaten the insurance system. And without insurance coverage, investment will grind to a halt.
