A financial institution

Financial institutions face many challenges in the context of the French and European transition to a low-carbon, climate-resilient economy. The involvement of financial players can vary: adaptation to changes, support for businesses, or commitment to generate an impact. In all cases, far-reaching changes are required to adapt tools and practices to changes in regulations, the economy, markets and the expectations of customers and project leaders. Finally, the financial system must place climate considerations at the heart of its operations in order to control risks and identify opportunities. In line with the sustainable finance plans defined in the National Low Carbon Strategy and the European Green Pact, the ClimAct Finance project seeks to integrate climate into risk management and to strengthen transparency in terms of the contribution of institutions to the fight against climate change and their resilience to its consequences.

    CLIMATE IMPACT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (CIMS): A METHODOLOGICAL FRAMEWORK FOR DEVELOPING A CLIMATE STRATEGY IN FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS 25 October 2021

    The objective of the CIMS is to help financial institutions design climate strategies with a high impact on climate change mitigation. It is particularly useful for financial institutions that have made long-term commitments (i.e. "Net Zero" commitments) and wish to implement short-term strategies to meet these commitments. CIMS can be applied at the level of the financial product, the business line or the institution as a whole. Although it is primarily designed for financial institutions, it can also be used as a basis for developing labelling or certification schemes for financial products. Download file
