The event was held as part of Paris for Tomorrow Week and organized by the French Agency for Ecological Transition (ADEME), the Ministry of Ecological Transition (CGDD), and the think tank 2° Investing Initiative (2DII).

2021 winners:

  • Asset Managers: ERAFP (French public service additional pension scheme)

Thibaut Ghirardi, Managing Director France, 2° Investing Initiative said: “The quality of the financial institutions that responded to this year’s International Climate Reporting Awards illustrates the growing focus by the financial sector on this topic. While various climate reporting and disclosure frameworks are now well established, what really matters is how they are implemented. In this respect, climate reporting and its future developments are absolutely decisive, and we are delighted to help spur progress on this topic in France and internationally.”

More on the Climate Reporting Awards

Building on leading global standards, including the Task force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and the EU Non-Financial Reporting Directive, the Awards aim to recognize financial institutions that integrate climate-related considerations into their reporting and business practices. For the first time this year, the Awards were closely integrated with the new Climate Transparency Hub (CTH) in order to promote transparency and best reporting practices around the globe. This fourth edition of the Awards was organized by CGDD, ADEME and 2DII with a high-level steering committee composed of the World Benchmarking Alliance, Principles for Responsible Investment, Finance for Tomorrow, Luxembourg Sustainable Finance Initiative, and Eurosif.
