Climate Change and Human Rights: Avoiding Pitfalls for Financial Institutions

This is a companion piece to Shift’s report Climate Action and Human Rights: How the UN Guiding Principles can help companies respect human rights when responding to climate change. The information in the Climate Action and Human Rights report is equally relevant for financial institutions. However, as intermediaries in the world economy, financial institutions face specific challenges and opportunities when integrating their responses to both climate change and human rights risks. Shift explored some of these in a dedicated session of its Financial Institutions Practitioners Circle in June 2022, with member banks and export credit agencies. This paper is based, in part, on the findings from that workshop as well as insights gained from Shift’s bilateral work with financial institutions and its own independent research.
