Closing the gaps in climate-related data is essential to the development of sustainable finance. While there has been some notable progress in this direction, the final report of the Network for Greening the Financial System workstream on bridging data gaps showed that there is still a strong need for better availability, comparability and reliability of climate-related data. Workstream co-chairs Fabio Natalucci, deputy director of the monetary and capital markets department at the International Monetary Fund, and Patrick Amis, director general of the directorate general specialised institutions at the European Central Bank, will speak about the report’s findings and recommendations for policy-makers and other stakeholders to address climate data challenges. The event will also discuss lessons learned from NGFS new living tool – a directory of climate data.
