Governments and private sectors are urgently being called upon to take action to reduce climate footprints, increase green investments and promote climate friendly initiatives with customers and the community they operate in. The financial sector has a unique opportunity to provide investment in climate focused initiatives, identify opportunities to reduce their own carbon footprint and also educate and support customers and communities alike on ways they can address climate change.
Recent findings by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) suggests that the most vulnerable will be impacted by climate change that includes women, poor and low-income families and those who reside in environments likely to experience a natural disaster. Optimistically however, women are more inclined to make more climate conscious purchases in households, start green businesses and are two times more likely to invest in green or climate focused initiatives.
