BBVA is 14th Leading Bank to Join UNEP FI TCFD Pilot Project

26 September 2017

We are pleased to announce that UNEP FI member, BBVA Group, is the latest to join UNEP FI’s first-mover project to implement the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) along with thirteen other leading banks. In collaboration with the pilot project group, they will jointly pioneer practical approaches to implementing the ground-breaking, forward-looking TCFD framework which will increase the amount of reliable information on financial institutions’ exposure to climate-related risks and opportunities.

Antoni Ballabriga, Global Head of Responsible Business at BBVA said, “We need a financial system that is more long-term oriented. Climate change issues have to be part of decision-making in any financial institution. Applying TCFD recommendations will challenge us to make it happen in a systematic way.”
