PIMCO Partnerships: Setting industry standards and driving market innovation

In order to drive a more globally coordinated sustainability effort, PIMCO contributes to key industry groups and multinational organizations. As one of the world's leading fixed income investors, we are actively involved in innovating and growing the market for sustainable bonds, and we also advocate for improved climate and other sustainability disclosures. Transitioning the global economy to a more inclusive and lower-carbon future will require trillions of dollars of investment, representing a significant opportunity for investors, particularly in fixed income.

One important partnership is with the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) CFO Taskforce for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which engages global CFOs on sustainable development, leveraging the nearly 10,000 companies participating in the UNGC. Scott Mather, CIO overseeing PIMCO's ESG investing efforts, is co-chair of the taskforce, and in August 2020, PIMCO co-launched the "CFO Principles on Integrated SDG Investments and Finance."
