Assessment and reporting of environment and climate-related risks and impacts on financial markets

A Nordic pre-study

Interest in sustainability has gained momentum in the financial sector. It is important to improve understanding about how improved transparency and comparability can be achieved and how the development towards more environmentally and climate-adapted financing can be supported. This report presents a mapping of the methods used for reporting environmental- and climate-related information and evaluating environmental and climate financial risks and impacts, in the Nordic region. Furthermore, the study explores opportunities for Nordic cooperation that could improve transparency and comparability among actors in the region. The report also proposes initiatives that could enhance the capacity to effectively take the 1,5 °C target into account in investment decisions.
