Newsletter | COP26

This week at COP26, more than 30 leading financial institutions with nearly US$9 trillion in assets under management – including Aviva, Schroders and Axa – committed to tackling commodity-driven deforestation in their portfolios by 2025.

To support finance sector action, Accountability Framework initiative (AFi) coalition member Global Canopy and its partners today released a Finance Sector Roadmap for Eliminating Commodity-Driven Deforestation. Grounded in the Accountability Framework, the Roadmap outlines how financial institutions can address deforestation and associated risks linked to financing commodities.
