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.

Guided by 5 Voluntary Principles for “Mainstreaming” climate change, institutions aim to shift from financing climate activities in incremental ways, to making climate change – both in terms of opportunities and risk – a core consideration and a “lens” through which institutions deploy capital.
