4 The Business Case for Climate Finance Climate change effects on financial institutions As early as 2006, a report analysing greenhouse gas emissions of the 500 world’s largest publicly-traded companies found that businesses will not be immune to the predicted changes and may experience disturbance to their operations and profitability.

5 The Business Case for Climate Finance Climate change effects on financial institutions it makes good business sense for financial institutions to start accounting for their own greenhouse gas emissions, according to a report issued by the World Resources Institute. The benefits include: - identifying reduction & subsequent money-saving opportunities; - cutting the company’s regulatory risks that may result from more stringent regional, national, or international efforts to curb global warming; and - enhancing reputational status in the eyes of the consumers.

13 Concluding Remarks Concluding Remarks Excerpts from ADFIAP’s Policy Statement on Climate Change “As an international community of development finance institutions, ADFIAP takes a long view of the importance and impact of the climate change issue, as this is not only a global phenomenon as it is local; an institutional concern as it is personal. Climate change and its effects is the responsibility of all to tackle now and in the future.” “As development organizations, DFIs have a natural mandate and catalytic role to play in climate change initiatives. To deal with climate change, it is necessary to work at two levels: to seek for the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and to be fully engaged in global efforts to stem the rate of climate change.” As financial intermediaries, DFIs are in a strategic position to help mitigate climate change’s impact, not only as a source of funds of projects that may contribute to the degradation of the environment but also as an advocate of it to project proponents themselves in the course of doing their businesses. These actions also need to be coordinated with programs to address other urgent priorities, such as reducing poverty, improving education and public health, investing in water and sanitation projects, and raising general living standards. Reliable, renewable and affordable supplies of energy are also essential in meeting these challenges.
