BlueOrchard has released a new study on climate finance. The study, compiled in cooperation with the FINEXUS Center for Financial Networks and Sustainability of the University of Zurich, discusses climate-related risks and their impact, especially on less-developed countries as well as potential economic losses in the financial system. Building on both organizations' experience and knowledge in the asset management industry, the study highlights the urgent need but also great opportunity for private financial players to develop portfolios that are more resilient to climate-related risks. It provides insights in the form of a case study and a private investor survey, discussing how climate finance and investment vehicles must be developed further to meet private investors' needs and expectations in order to enable them to take advantage of the climate finance market's opportunities and to increase their engagement in climate finance. Furthermore, the study identifies important steps that need to be taken in order for the private sector to realise the significant role it has in upscaling the funding needed to reach the targets of the Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and help tackle the consequences of climate change.
