Our planet must remain livable and the financial industry plays a key role in securing its future: financial flows must be re-oriented from environmentally harmful activities to a sustainable economy.

Financial regulation, alongside other policies, should ensure private finance becomes an enabler of sustainable transition. This requires:

  • Transparency and corporate governance reforms to ensure real-world outcomes and prevent greenwashing.
  • Robust risk management and adequate capital levels of financial institutions to make them resilient, ensure a “safe transition” and avoid a climate-driven financial crisis.
