In the context of its commitment to the Principles for Responsible Banking (PRB), which it helped to draw up as a founding bank, Natixis has joined the United Nations’ Collective Commitment to Climate Action. Through this agreement, Natixis promises to:
- Align its financing portfolio with the aim of limiting global warming to less than two degrees by financing a low-carbon economy;
- Take concrete measures in this direction in the year after signing the agreement;
- Account for its actions.
“As a Founding Bank of the Principles for Responsible Banking, Natixis is proud to be part of the Collective Commitment to Climate Action that engages our company to take new initiatives to further align our financing portfolio with the Paris Agreement on Climate. Our Green Weighting Factor is a concrete and innovative tool to accelerate the shift towards a low-carbon economy.” François Riahi, CEO, Natixis
