UBS’s acquisition of Credit Suisse raises questions about which climate policies will be adopted by the newly formed entity, and how UBS’s climate risks and impacts might change.

UBS Say On Climate assessment
UBS is giving shareholders a vote on its sustainability report, which includes a copy of the bank’s first climate transition plan, at its 2023 AGM on 5 April 2023. ShareAction recommends voting against the climate strategy. An important caveat of our assessment is that it reflects the bank’s position prior to its acquisition of Credit Suisse and is accurate up until this point. We urge investors to use this report alongside our assessment of Credit Suisse’s climate strategy to get a better understanding of their strengths and weaknesses, and call on UBS to make climate action a core pillar of the newly merged entity.

Aligning with 1.5C A benchmark for the chemical sector
Global warming must be held at 1.5°C to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, which are already being disproportionately felt by the world’s poorest communities. The chemical sector, which is responsible for over 6 per cent of global emissions, must act rapidly to achieve this goal. ShareAction has produced a benchmark that sets clear, measurable and evidence-based standards for chemical companies that are truly aligned with the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5°C. Investors should use the benchmark to assess whether the companies they hold are truly 1.5°C aligned, and engage with them where they fall short.
