Financial institutions taking action

Since 2015, PCAF members (i.e. commercial banks, development banks, asset owners/managers, insurance companies, etc.) have been actively collaborating to develop and implement carbon accounting in their organizations.

All financial institutions have experienced great value in assessing and disclosing their GHG emissions of their loans and investments, as this triggers a institution-wide discussion on climate change and the role of the financial institution to facilitate the transition towards a low-carbon society.

Best practice examples

Financial institutions have applied the PCAF methods in various asset classes.
