Sustainable Finance

Financial instruments to manage the opportunities of climate change

Climate Finance or Sustainable Finance must be considered as an essential tool to accelerate action on the climate, effectively manage the risks and opportunities associated with climate change, call for taking a leading role in supporting this process.

Sustainable finance, in terms of "SRI" (Sustainable and Responsible Investment) includes investments that, in a long-term perspective, integrate environmental, social and governance criteria (ESG).

Strengthening the role of finance in realizing an efficient economy that also achieves environmental and social objectives is one of the objectives set by the European Community.With the first action plan on sustainable finance, which will implement a unified system (taxonomy) to provide clarity and guidance on the activities to be considered "sustainable" and useful for climate change mitigation, Europe is committed to promote a more sustainable and responsible society and a low-carbon economy.

Confidence in climate objectives and the use of Sustainable Finance to tackle climate change is fundamental. By bringing sustainable financial instruments closer to businesses, the private sector can help raise global awareness of climate change.

La percezione del rischio climatico delle società quotate al FTSE MIB – Rapporto 2020

La seconda edizione del Rapporto “La percezione del rischio climatico delle società quotate al FTSE MIB” è stata realizzata da Carbonsink e Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei, e si basa sulle informazioni rese pubbliche in materia di disclosure climatica andando a delineare il grado di maturità delle tematiche connesse al cambiamento climatico delle principali società italiane.

In questa nuova edizione, oltre all’aggiornamento del campione analizzato, si è deciso di affinare ulteriormente la metodologia di indagine allineandola quanto più possibile allo schema della TCFD e alle Non-BindingGuidelines on Non-Financial Reporting della Commissione Europea, nonché alle prassi e alle iniziative che stanno guidando la transizione verso un futuro low carbon.

L’obiettivo principale del Rapporto è fornire uno strumento di riflessione per le imprese impegnate nella definizione della propria strategia climatica e stimolare così il dibattito in merito alla materialità del cambiamento climatico per le imprese, e capire quali step sono ancora necessari per raggiungere gli obiettivi sul clima stabiliti dall’Accordo di Parigi ed indispensabili per la transizione net-zero emissions richiesta.
