Altogether, 58 stakeholders from a variety of sectors (financial institutions, consultancies, NGOs, etc.) completed the survey. There were two key takeaways from the survey results:
First, most of those consulted agreed that in order to achieve science-based climate targets, financial institutions need to drive actions that lead to GHG emissions reductions in the real economy.
Second, there was a consensus that there is insufficient evidence to show that aligning the exposure of an investment/lending portfolio with climate scenarios can serve as a proxy for measuring the financial institution’s impact in the real economy.
