THE SERIES OF WEBINAR ON “METHODOLOGIES AND TOOLS FOR PARIS ALIGNMENT”
This week we concluded the series of webinars on “Methodologies and tools for Paris Alignment”.
The webinars have been a success. In FC4S, we are convinced that targeted financial sector representatives must constantly update their training and keep informed of the avant-garde tools to work towards the Paris Agreement, and zero-carbon transition.
Therefore, we want to thank everyone who attended; and the exhibitors of each meeting. It was truly an honor to have your attendance and the possibility to exchange best practices with you.
The organization of this series emerged from the development of a paper in collaboration with the Coalition of Finance Ministers for Climate Action, named “Paris Alignment for Private Financial Institutions: Commitments and Methodologies”. You can read the key findings here.
This research showed that sustainable finance initiatives have quintupled in the last decade, and climate change is still their main focus of attention. Groups of financial institutions have likewise collectively stepped up worldwide to advance on aligning their portfolios with the zero-carbon transition.
As yet, they have increasingly been working towards Paris alignment through commitments and pledges, mostly through internationally convened networks. Although commitments on Paris alignment are a fundamental step towards decarbonizing portfolios and balance sheets, the operationalization of commitments remains challenging.
