UNEP FI @ Climate Adaptation Summit : Part 2

Presented by

David Carlin (UNEP FI); Marieke Bonekamp (Rabobank); David Goldsworthy (Standard Bank)

About this talk

UNEP FI is hosting a side event at the Climate Adaptation Summit, focusing on climate-related physical risk. Leading financial institutions will announce their commitment to climate-related physical risk assessment and disclosure, while announcing a ‘call to action’ to the finance sector to address the principal obstacles to greater disclosure. This second part of the side event will present UNEP FI's work on physical climate risks through our TCFD pilot program and showcase how two banks are engaging clients on climate impacts.

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.
