This resource looks at the role that central banks and other financial regulators can play in mitigating climate-related risks to financial institutions and systems.

It is intended to support NGOs to understand and use the financial indicators in the 2020 Climate Transparency Report, the world’s most comprehensive annual review of G20 countries’ climate action and their transition to a net-zero emissions economy.

The annual Climate Transparency reports include assessments of whether central banks and financial regulators are using the main policy instruments available to them to tackle climate change:

  • Enhanced supervisory review, risk disclosure and market discipline
  • Enhanced capital and liquidity requirements
