The private financial sector is a crucial component of achieving our global climate and sustainability goals, from the power of directing its own assets and investments, to its leverage in evaluating “counterparties,” in other words the clients and assets in its portfolios.
CPI collaborates directly with the private financial sector—asset managers, asset owners, banks, corporates, and insurers—to establish frameworks, increase transparency, and develop new financial models and instruments that accelerate the transition of global finance flows towards net zero emissions and climate-resilient development. The effectiveness of our private financial sector work is enhanced by CPI’s ability to bring key actors outside the private sector to the table, ensuring coordinated, mutually-agreeable approaches that accelerate adoption and implementation.
