Principles for Paris-Aligned Financial Institutions

Financial institutions (FIs) that commit to “Paris alignment” must also commit to aligning with the Paris Agreement’s goal of limiting global warming to 1.5°C while respecting all human rights and the specific rights of Indigenous Peoples. Any “net zero” targets or other FI climate commitments must also align with this goal. Transforming these commitments into actionable plans that meet the full ambition of the Paris Agreement should be guided by the facts ligned out in this document.
