One Planet Sovereign Wealth Funds (OPSWF)
The One Planet Sovereign Wealth Funds (OPSWF) Working Group was established at the One Planet Summit on 12 December 2017 in Paris. This group of six Sovereign Wealth Funds committed to develop an ESG framework to address financial risks due to climate change, and to develop methods and indicators that can inform investors’ priorities as shareholders and participants in financial markets.
The One Planet SWF Framework consisting of the three main principles Alignment, Ownership and Integration was published in July 2018.
The OPSWF partnered with GRAFSI to form the One Planet Sovereign Wealth Funds Research Forum which was launched on 14 July 2019 at the Élysée Palace in Paris.
The Research Forum will support the OPSWF by identifying and facilitating rigorous and impactful research projects relevant to the implementation of the One Planet SWF Framework, as well as providing training and capacity building for One Planet SWF members.
There will also be a research dialogue where the latest research is shared with One Planet SWF members and One Planet Asset Managers members.
