B4ICA: Banking for Impact on Climate in Agriculture

Rabobank, Wageningen University & Research Centre, WBCSD, Wageningen University & Research Centre, Rabobank, WBCSD, Blond Consultants, UNEP FI, FAO

The agriculture sector is faced with larger data gaps and more complexities around the estimation of emissions and decarbonization pathways than any other sector, which makes the measurement and disclosure of the greenhouse gas emissions of banking portfolios in this sector particularly challenging. Against this background, this Initiative aims to convene and facilitate a coalition of banks and relevant experts and academics   to develop and align consistent methods, targets, harmonized tools and guidance for finance institutions to assess and disclose on the alignment of their portfolios with various climate scenarios as well as to engage with clients on mitigation options.
