Good to see @Citi and CEO Jane Fraser release their 2021 @FSB_TCFD Report & #netzero plan. We need these targets to be aligned with climate science and #NZBA guidelines to reach net zero. Citi’s Transition Principles offer welcome visibility on their approach.

Saddened by the death of Paul Myners. He was focused, driven and effective during crisis; irreverent and challenging during calm. Always generous with his advice, time and good humour. Rest in peace.

Thoroughly enjoyed discussing what does and doesn’t make sense in the future of finance with ⁦@HarryStebbings⁩. What prospers when enormous innovation meets financial reality in bust as well as boom? https://open.spotify.com/episode/5Fj78kFyeLCOGgfjYoXc37

An honour to (virtually) welcome you to Canada @USAmbCanada, and a pleasure to discuss Canada-US opportunities to grow jobs and incomes while shrinking carbon emissions. Great powers are green powers! 🇨🇦🇺🇸

Looking forward to joining @christineyvr on Wednesday for a discussion on what’s next for climate policy after #COP26 and the essential role the private sector will play in delivering #netzero

(Virtually) back in London live now on @ITVPeston to discuss the Road from Glasgow

After the delays and detours on the road from Paris, we must be sure to travel fast and far on the road from Glasgow. #COP26

Loans & investments from #GFANZ members will not only fund green projects like renewables, but will also go where the emissions are— autos, steel, cement—and back those companies w/ plans to decarbonize, and withdraw capital from companies that aren’t moving fast enough. #COP26

Ppl will no longer tolerate worthy statements followed by futile gestures. They won’t settle for govt’s making announcements at summits that they don’t meet at home. Or companies that speak green but don’t act. That’s why we’ve worked to transform the heart of finance. #COP26

Congratulations and a huge thank you to my good friend Gonzalo for his incredible and tireless work to accelerate the Race to Zero. Nigel will take forward this momentum to ensure we deliver on the Road from Glasgow to Sharm el Sheikh @gmunozabogabir @cop26 #racetozero

By developing solutions to an existential risk like #climatechange, we are, by definition, creating value. The $130 trillion raised by the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero gives us a sense of the scale of the risk—and the oppty.

Thanks @lionelbarber #GFANZ #COP26Glasgow

Welcome @MikeBloomberg as co-chair of the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero & Mary Schapiro as vice chair.

Looking fwd to continuing our work to build the architecture so every financial decision takes #climate change into account. #COP26 #GFANZ

The world’s biggest banks, asset managers, insurers, & pension funds increasingly see #climate as a fundamental risk to be managed.

This means a virtuous cycle of large-scale investment, faster #decarbonization, and more jobs.

#COP26 #MyFirstGif

Today at #COP26, Chancellor @RishiSunak and I convened 36 international partners to welcome the @IFRSFoundation’s plan to create global #climate reporting standards to give investors the information they need to finance #netzero.

Finance is no longer a mirror that reflects a world that’s not doing nearly enough.

It’s become a window through which ambitious #climateaction can deliver the #sustainable future people want. It will help end the tragedy of the horizon. #COP26

With our #COP26 private finance strategy we’re transforming the tools, markets, and information at the heart of finance to make #netzero possible. #TogetherForOurPlanet 1/5

Make no mistake: the 💰 is now there if the 🌎 truly wants to arrest the #climatecrisis

Today, through the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero #GFANZ, over $130 trillion of capital from 450+ firms across 45 countries is committed to transforming the economy #COP26

A few years ago, the financial system held a mirror to the #climatecrisis, and too many thought #climatechange was someone else’s problem to solve.

Our goal for #COP26 has been to build a financial system in which every decision takes climate change into account.

Tomorrow will be a big day for #climatefinance at #COP26 w/ new announcements on commitments made and action taken to reach #netzero.

Grateful for all the work done to ensure rigour and credibility behind the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero 1/5

Credible and predictable #climate policies like 🇨🇦’s price on carbon drive private investment.

Thank you @JustinTrudeau for hosting this discussion on Day 2 of #COP26 and for cont’d Canadian leadership on carbon pricing. #ClimateCrisis
