The Climate Action in Financial Institutions is an initiative composed of 30 public and private Financial institutions around the globe that have endorsed the 5 Principles for Climate Mainstreaming.

Launched in 2015, the initiative aims to provide public and private financial institutions an opportunity to learn from each other, to disseminate good practice and lessons learned and to collaborate on areas of common interest.

Supporting Institutions will be sharing practice, learning from each other and in some cases developing new approaches on each of the following work streams:

  • Climate risks: approaches, tools and methodologies
  • Mapping reporting initiatives and understanding implementation challenges
  • City-level climate smart approaches and financial instruments
  • Spreading a climate strategy into a whole organization

Based on its expertise and publication on the different topic prioritized by the initiative, I4CE has been named as the Secretariat of the Climate Action in Financial Institutions Initiative.  As such, I4CE contributes to the work of the initiative on the following issues:

  • Provides substantive inputs to the initiative’s work program and technical elements to define Work-stream roadmaps.
  • Produces some of the deliverables of the initiative on an ad-hoc basis
  • Assists the initiative’s coordination group in facilitating collaboration between members
  • Supports the initiative’s communication efforts (Website management, newsletters, twitter, etc…)
