Together with this year’s host Deutsche Bundesbank, UNEP FI and VfU set up a roundtable for the twelfth time on 1stand 2nd December 2016. More than 150 representatives of the banking and insurance sectors, politics, sciences and numerous NGOs took part. This year, the event’s motto was „Closing the gaps. Integrating Sustainability in the Core Business of Financial Institutions”.
WWF Germany and we presented our project “Transition-adequate Banking”. It is our goal to create an easy to apply approach to assess and evaluate the 2°C-compatibility of companies. This approach improves the process of determining the financial impacts of climate related risks and opportunities and enables banks to intensify contacts with credit receivers.
