|Titel||Aligning finance for the net zero economy: New ideas from leading thinkers|
In this paper, Ben Caldecott examines how financial institutions can move beyond climate-risk management and towards much closer alignment with climate outcomes. Instead of incidentally contributing to alignment with climate outcomes through climate risk management initiatives, we need specific ways of dealing with and contributing to the challenge of alignment. This report is a non-exhaustive attempt to try and rebalance the conversation, in which Dr Caldecott outlines three crucial elements necessary to align a financial institutions’ business strategy with climate outcomes. The paper also develops a number of further recommendations that would help to ensure climate alignment at the systemic level.
