In order to fulfill its mission UNEP FI strives to provide a number of products and services directly aimed at facilitating the implementation of sustainable finance policies and practices in the global financial sector. Please find these listed below.

 

Transition Check Tool
Transition Check allows corporate lenders and other financial institutions to quantify the impact of transition risk on their customers and corporate lending portfolios across a wide variety of climate scenarios. Transition Check applies the risk assessment methodology collaboratively developed by Oliver Wyman, the UNEP FI and thirty-nine global financial institutions as part of UNEP FI’s Task-Force on Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) pilot program.

ENCORE tool
The online ENCORE tool (Exploring Natural Capital Opportunities, Risks and Exposure) enables users to visualise how the economy impacts and depends on nature and how environmental change creates risks for businesses and thus financial institutions. Starting from a business sector, ecosystem service, or natural capital asset, ENCORE can be easily used to start exploring natural capital risks. These risks can be explored further to understand location-specific risks with maps of natural capital assets and drivers of environmental change.

Drought Stress Testing Tool
The Drought Stress Testing Tool enables banks to assess if a client may be at risk from drought and how drought can affect a sector or region. A clearer understanding of the risk associated with droughts can help build more resilient financial institutions, and by shifting finance to less vulnerable sectors and regions, economies can become more stable and resource efficient. In turn, this helps the planet, as more resource efficient production in less vulnerable areas can produce healthier ecosystems better equipped to absorb shocks such as droughts.
