SHARE

This study is aimed at making a diagnosis and a gap analysis of the practices of leading Brazilian privately-owned banks to reduce the climate impact of their operations and to promote a low-carbon economy. This study complements the previous one, ‘Brazilian State-owned Banks and Climate Change - An analysis of the strategies and practices of brazilian state-owned banks and regional funds to manage climate change challenges,’ published in 2010. The two studies provide an overview of strategies and practices adopted by the Brazilian financial sector in relation to climate issues. It is expected that these results may help to enhance the strategies of the institutions, as well as develop public policies aimed at mitigating and adapting climate change.
