    BoE Launches Private Finance Agenda for Transition to Net Zero Economy

    February 27, 2020

    The Governor of BoE, Mark Carney, launched the "COP26 Private Finance Agenda" to help private finance support the whole economy transition to net zero. The objective of the Agenda is that every professional financial decision will need to take climate change into account. The right framework for reporting, risk management, and returns will embed these considerations and help finance a whole economy transition. To achieve net zero, every company, bank, insurer, and investor will need to adjust their business models for a low carbon world. BoE has also published the speech of Mark Carney on the launch of COP26 Private Finance Agenda.

    The following are the key highlights of the COP26 private finance strategy:

    • Refine climate-related financial disclosure to increase quantity and quality of reporting
    • Agree potential paths to mandatory reporting at domestic and international levels
    • Ensure that firms and investors can measure and manage the risks in the transition to a net zero world
    • Assess the resilience of firm’s strategies to net zero transition through stress tests. Develop open source, business-relevant reference scenarios for regulators, financial firms, and businesses to test strategic resilience
    • Encourage Multilateral Development Banks to report their own emissions and exposure to climate risks, in line with the Taskforce for Climate-related Finance Disclosures (TCFD)
    • Work with private sector to promote the most promising and impactful financial innovations in sustainable finance (including transition bonds, contingent climate securitizations, and the scaling up of rapid private markets for carbon offsets and nature-based solutions)
