The Carbon Bankroll

How could transformation of financial supply chains present a massive opportunity for companies & banks to lead the change towards decarbonisation?

In ‘Following the Money, Leading the Change,’ James Vaccaro, partner at NOW Partners, Executive Director of the Climate Safe Lending Network (CSLN), and a member of the advisory panel for the Glasgow Finance Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ), explains the importance of the recently released Carbon Bankroll report, which highlights the climate impact of cash held by global businesses and the potential power to transform financial supply chains.

James Vaccaro writes: “Major corporations know how to innovate and drive markets; banks respond to their customers and know how to scale up solutions efficiently. Brought together this could spark transformative change at a time when it is needed most.”
