The International Climate Reporting Awards

Would you like to have a thorough feedback on your climate risk reporting? The fourth edition of the International Climate Reporting Awards (ICRA) are currently open for submissions. This award targets financial institutions worldwide and rewards the best climate reporting practices both in terms of exposure to climate risk and contribution to the climate goals.

ICRA is jointly organised by the non-profit think tank, 2° Investing Initiative (2DII), the French Agency for Ecological Transition (ADEME), and the Ministry of Ecological Transition (CGDD).

OBJECTIVES

The Awards aim to recognize financial institutions that integrate climate-related considerations into their reporting and business practices, notably:

  • To increase awareness and promote best practices and innovation in climate reporting and disclosures

  • To highlight ongoing progress in reporting, build capacity, share expertise and identify remaining challenges

  • To provide the opportunity for applicants to receive detailed feedback on their current reporting

All financial institutions around the world are eligible, including asset managers, asset owners, insurances and banks, as well as development banks and central banks.

KEY DATES
