Financial institutions lagging behind investor expectations on climate risk and Net Zero alignment

  • Investor focus on climate risks to the financial sector is moving beyond the existence of a long-term net-zero target
  • Financial institutions are not yet equipped with sufficient methodologies to show that their alignments to Net Zero trajectories aren’t just reflecting ‘paper decarbonization’
  • Regulators and investors are zooming in on climate as a key risk so financial institutions that aren’t focused on the issue may find the road ahead bumpier than expected.
  • Short- and medium-term targets
  • Clear data on financed emissions
  • Scenario analysis results
  • Audited financial statements that include climate-related matters.
