Established and led by CICERO, the Expert Network on Second Opinions (ENSO) is a global one-stop window for science-based second opinions to the financial market, providing clear and concise environmental information to investors.
As the global market of green bond frameworks is growing rapidly, global demand for independent and research-based second opinions is also increasing.
ENSO is comprised of trusted research institutions and reputable experts on climate change and other environmental issues from across the world:
- Basque Center for Climate Change (BC3)
- Stockholm Environment Institute
- Institute of Energy, Environment and Economy at Tsinghua University
- International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD)
ENSO operates independently from the financial sector and other stakeholders to preserve the unbiased nature and high quality of second opinions.
Working confidentially with issuers, the network aims to improve the ‘greenness’ of their investment frameworks. Thus ENSO aims to assist the transition of the bond market towards more climate-friendly and greener investments and improved transparency.
