The Global Canopy Programme (GCP) and the UN Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) announced today that Citi has become an official Signatory to the Natural Capital Declaration (NCD).
The NCD is a finance sector initiative, endorsed by 43 financial institutions. It advances environmental risk management and innovative conservation finance, as well as financial sector accountability for the impacts and dependencies of portfolio companies.
NCD Supporters, including Bloomberg LP and the Convention on Biological Diversity also contribute a range of expertise to the initiative’s practical work programme. Signatories and Supporters collaborate to develop tools, methodologies and guidance to help understand and integrate natural capital considerations into financial products and services, supported by a Secretariat jointly run by GCP and UNEP FI.
“Managing environmental and social risks associated with client transactions and increasing financing of environmentally sustainable business opportunities are core parts of our Sustainable Progress strategy,” said Courtney Lowrance, Director, Environmental and Social Risk Management at Citi. “We are proud to join the Natural Capital Declaration to deepen this work of integrating natural capital considerations into our work.”
Liesel van Ast, Programme Manager, Natural Capital Declaration states, “We are excited to have Citi commit to the Natural Capital Declaration’s programme to strengthen management of environmental risks and opportunities in the financial sector. We look forward to working with Citi to help catalyse the inclusion of science and data on natural resource constraints and environmental pressures into lending and investment decisions.”
