  1. Question: Could you please confirm that the following statement in pages 4 and 6 of the ToR “The final report should follow the OECD style guide” refers to the OECD Style Guide , third edition, from 2015? If another guide or format should be followed could you please indicate where to find it?

Response: Top 10 in each industry although there will likely be significant crossover of organisations between the categories.

Response: By assets.

  1. Question: In pages 3 y 6 of the ToR, “integrate ESG issues into their activities and decision-making processes”.
