Financed emissions are the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with the investment activity of financial institutions. These emissions are the largest, most material component of the financial industry's GHG footprint. Their measurement and reduction are key to achieving net-zero goals. Join us for an informative webinar as we share why financed emissions matter, as well as recent voluntary commitments, industry guidance, and regulatory implications. In addition, we'll cover the maturity level of financed emission programs across the industry and challenges to their implementation.
Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Define financed emissions and their importance in the context of the current climate risk/ESG/sustainability landscape
- Relate financed emissions to net-zero programs and transition planning
- Describe evolving voluntary commitments, industry guidance, and regulatory implications
- Identify common challenges to the implementation of financed emissions measurement, target setting, and management programs.
