    Frameworks for Positive Impact Finance: holistic impact analysis for corporates
    Marie-Aimee Boury | Careen Abb | Jérôme Lavigne-Delville Recorded: Jan 22 2019 64 mins
    This webinar helps financial institutions understand how to apply a holistic positive impact lens to portfolios or products for corporates with unspecified use of proceed via a recently released Model Framework.
    This Framework serves as a basis for a new Working Group on holistic impact analysis, which brings together financial institutions to test the framework with real cases and share learnings.
    The Model Frameworks are the tools through which the PI Principles are interpreted and implemented. They are developed by the PI Initiative to guide the delivery of Positive Impact financial products and for ongoing portfolio monitoring. Financial institutions can use them to develop or adapt their own frameworks. Auditors, analysts and other stakeholders can use them to verify or provide opinions on the PI nature of financial products.

    Marie-Aimee Boury, Managing Director, Impact Based Finance, Société Générale
    Careen Abb, Lead, Positive Impact Initiative, UNEP FI

  • From TCFD to SDG Finance: Next Steps in Sustainable Finance
    From TCFD to SDG Finance: Next Steps in Sustainable Finance
    Careen Abb, Positive Impact Lead, UNEP FI | Remco Fischer, Climate Lead, UNEP FI Recorded: Nov 14 2018 61 mins
    UNEP FI has pioneered work on Positive Impact finance, and TCFD implementation for investors, banks and insurers.

    Hear from the leaders at UNEP FI about next steps in SDG finance, as well as in TCFD implementation, and how the bigger picture in sustainable finance is evolving.


    A stocktake of SDG Finance

    Where are we at with SDG financing? Latest UN reports (HLPF, September 2018) suggest we may not be on track overall with SDGs. UNEP FI & a range of partners believe that results-driven – i.e. impact focused – analysis needs to be consolidated and mainstreamed to meaningfully connect the private and finance sector to the SDG agenda. The Principles for Positive Impact provide a meta-framework with a holistic definition of impact to complement and promote convergence among the growing body of impact-oriented methodologies and standards.



    Next steps in TCFD implementation

    How can financial institutions better understand, assess, and prepare for climate change, across meteorological, technological, and regulatory domains? How can they do so in a forward-looking, scenario-based manner, that allows them to respond to the FSB TCFD? How are they coalescing and organising on UNEP FI platforms to jointly develop answers? UNEP FI has led several pilot-projects on TCFD implementation, and here, we share the results and outcomes.
