Over the coming decades, banks will be called on to finance a radical and rapid transition of the global real economy, from a high volume of high-emitting activities towards a mix of lower-emissions activities which are holistically aligned with ‘net zero by 2050’ pathways. 

The Net-Zero Banking Alliance Transition Finance Guide provides Alliance members and the banking industry with a summary of key levers available to them, as well as an overview of some of the approaches and frameworks currently leveraged by market participants, to accelerate the shift of capital towards low-carbon activities. This guide also highlights potential inter-operability (and gaps) between such frameworks and suggests policy responses to scale up transition finance globally.

This Transition Finance Guide was created by the Financing & Engagement sub-track of the Alliance’s industry-led Implementation Work Track.
