The Climate Action in Financial Institutions initiative is a coalition of public and private financial institutions around the globe aiming to adopt a pathway to systematically integrate or “Mainstream” climate change considerations across their strategies, programs and operations. Organized by I4CE, the Secretariat of the initiative, the session will focus on the impact of commitments on business models, on organizational strategies, and in fine on local projects.
