2021-09 How different countries mitigate climate risks in their financial sectors
Financial services organisations around the world are rethinking how they work in order to better embed sustainability into their business models. At the same time, climate stress tests are entering the mainstream in many jurisdictions. But even though regulation is fast developing, there is still a lack of consistency in the methods used and the extent of the commitments.
To better understand how different countries are mitigating climate risks in their financial sectors, we are proud to partner with OMFIF on the Sustainable finance policy tracker.
This online tool is intended to be the ‘go-to’ resource for financial institutions to monitor the activities of central banks and regulators on sustainability.
Discover the tool
The tracker includes an interactive map covering initial 22 countries and jurisdictions and covers 14 areas related to sustainable finance policy, including:
- regulatory and supervisory measures to address climate risks in the financial sector;
- stress-testing activity;
- sustainable taxonomies;
- climate-related disclosures and green bond issuance.
The country directory allows users to select a country and view a summary of its policies and activities related to sustainable finance.
The tool will be updated on a regular basis, with more countries and indicators to be added in the near future.
