The financial sector has a major role to play in the ecological transformation of our societies. Immediate action on its part is essential to ensure that greenhouse gas emissions are halved by 2030 and to limit global warming to 1.5°C, the imperative set by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Reclaim Finance has developed a set of ambitious and realistic recommendations for all financial actors – banks, insurers and investors – to help them transform their activities. These recommendations are not exhaustive and mainly address the energy sector. 

Some recommendations are still being finalized. Those available on this page concern asset managers.

The credibility of a climate policy depends on what it contains, the level of ambition it sets for itself, the effectiveness of its implementation and the methodological rigor on which it is built.

It is recommended that financial actors base their climate policy on scientific foundations and methodologies adapted to the objectives sought. Our recommendations list here the key elements to be integrated (reference scenario, databases, scope of application of the policy, engagement and voting policy, etc.).
