Part 1 of a two-phase study on the financial services sector and climate change commissioned by the UNEP FI Climate Change Working Group. Part 1 discusses the underlying reasons why climate change is relevant to the financial services industry and the need for long-term, ‘beyond-Kyoto’ market-based frameworks for fostering finance sector participation. The study presents an overview of the specific threats and opportunities facing the financial services industry and makes a series of strategic recommendations to policymakers and financial institutions for early action on the issue.
