  • Climate target setting +2
    The limitations of voluntary climate commitments from private financial actors 11 January 2023

    For several years, considerable time and energy has been dedicated to the subject of voluntary commitments from private financial actors. Such initiatives, however, encounter important structural obstacles that limit their effectiveness, as highlighed in this Policy Brief. While beneficial and worthy of encouragement, we cannot expect these initiatives to deliver more than they are realistically capable of achieving. Hence the need for a strong commitment from public authorities to mobilize private finance to support a rapid and organized transition. Download file

  • An industrial Climate target setting +2
    Physical risks and adaptation to climate change in industry - Focus on BUILDINGS 16 December 2022

    The world has already exceeded +1°C global warming compared to the pre-industrial period (1850-1900). Climate change and in particular the increase in climate hazards (droughts, floods, etc.) will impact industrial buildings: their structures and materials, users, equipment, processes, etc. These impacts will have consequences for industry, its activity and its productivity. Companies must therefore prepare for this and anticipate it. The purpose of this memo is to present concepts related to physical risks in the industrial sector, including the impacts of climate change on industrial buildings, in order to anticipate and adapt to them.

  • Climate target setting +2
    Scenario analysis of transition risk in finance – Towards strategic integration of deep uncertainty 1 June 2022

    Scenario analysis can help financial institutions to better understand climate risks, but it is not currently used in a satisfactory manner. In this study, I4CE provides financial institutions and regulators with a checklist of actions to ensure that scenario analysis leads to better strategic integration of transitional climate risks. It should also help to mobilise teams throughout the process and encourage them to review their decision-making processes. Download file

  • An industrial Climate target setting +2
    Physical risks and adaptation to climate change in industry - Focus on WORKERS 29 April 2022

    Climate change, and in particular the increase in climatic events, will modify working conditions, both indoors and outdoors, and access to industrial sites, and increase the risks to workers' health and safety. These impacts will have consequences for industry, its activity and productivity, which must be anticipated and prepared for. ADEME has published a memo that presents the concepts related to physical risks for workers in the industrial sector, the factors to be considered and the existing tools. Download file
