About this talk

The use of authoritative datasets and data sources is a challenge for many financial institutions. A collaboration between the Climate Data Factory and the EU's Copernicus Climate Change Service is aiming to provide a climate hazards data set of reference for physical risk assessment that aligns with the recommendations of the TCFD, and that will also align with the needs of users from the finance sector.

United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is a partnership between United Nations Environment and the global financial sector created in the wake of the 1992 Earth Summit with a mission to promote sustainable finance. More than 240 financial institutions, including banks, insurers, and investors, work with UN Environment to understand today’s environmental, social and governance challenges, why they matter to finance, and how to actively participate in addressing them. UNEP FI’s work also includes a strong focus on policy – by facilitating country-level dialogues between finance practitioners, supervisors, regulators and policy-makers, and, at the international level, by promoting financial sector involvement in processes such as the global climate negotiations.
