Why take action?

Prepare for a rapidly changing market

Financing the global commodities sector is a key part of the climate challenge – and carbon-intensive portfolios harbor significant risks.

For the sake of a climate-safe future, and to stay competitive and resilient in a rapidly changing market, commodity trade finance providers and syndicates need to uncover and tackle their financed emissions.

Finance and lending decisions have the power to redirect capital towards more sustainable solutions within climate-critical sectors. Doing so is increasingly urgent.

As the world’s most polluting sectors, the extractive and agriculture industries are highly exposed to risks in the transition to a net-zero economy, which is already underway. Disruption in one area of the value chain will have a knock-on effect throughout.
