    ACPR Establishes Climate and Sustainable Finance Committee

    October 15, 2019

    ACPR published a decision establishing the Climate and Sustainable Finance Committee, which will work on addressing the issues related to sustainable finance. The committee was set up to inform the strategic orientations and decisions of the Supervisory Board of ACPR regarding governance and prevention of climate risks, compliance with the commitments to sustainability, and incentives for sustainable financing. The Annex to the decision provides the list of committee members.

    The committee has been tasked with addressing issues related to financing of the transition to a low-carbon and sustainable economy for institutions falling within its field of competence. It will promote a constructive dialog between all stakeholders on measuring and communicating commitments on the sustainable finance agenda, to ensure comparability and follow-up over time. The committee will also contribute to the development of methodologies for treatment of these commitments jointly with the Autorité des marchés financial institutions (AMF). It has been mandated to contribute to the work of ACPR, particularly in the form of proposals for the joint report published with AMF. This joint report will contain recommendations to improve the monitoring of the commitments and to develop the tools and regulatory framework for development of sustainable finance.
