The Climate Transparency Hub is online!
After an open contribution period launched in October 2020, the Climate Transparency Hub (CTH) is now officially online. The CTH is the first platform in France dedicated to the centralization of climate reporting by financial institutions. It aims at synthesizing the climate component of annual extra-financial reports to facilitate the monitoring of practices. It will produce a report each year to explain and highlight the best practices observed.
Funded by the LIFE Finance ClimAct Project, the CTH is a resource platform that aims to support the understanding and improvement of climate reporting practices. To this end, it is aimed at financial institutions, actors and observers of sustainable finance, as well as savers and the general public.
The site allows to consult the climate reporting exercises submitted by voluntary institutions (climate files section), to access the summaries produced by the CTH team (characterized reports section), and to consult a set of publications on the subject of climate reporting (guidelines section).
The initiative is already supported by more than twenty financial institutions committed to the subject, whose climate disclosures are now available for consultation: Ircantec, ERAFP, Scor, Demeter, Swiss Life France, Covéa Finance, La Banque de France, AXA, La Banque Postale AM, Mandarine Gestion, Société Générale, Société Générale Assurance, Lyxor AM, La Financière de l’Echiquier, Generali France, MACIF, MACSF, RGreen Invest, OFI AM, Groupama, BNP Paribas Cardif, Groupama AM, Aviva France, Crédit Mutuel AM, ECOFI and MAIF.
Characterized reports will be published on the CTH website in the order on a rolling base. Climate files for the 2020 reporting years can still be submitted by creating a financial institution account. The closing date for contributions on the 31th of January means that these extra files will be published without associated characterized reports (without analysis). The production of characterized reports for the reporting years published in 2021 will take place in the summer of 2021.
