Strengthening the Climate Information Architecture

Caio Ferreira, David Lukáš Rozumek, Ranjit Singh, and Felix Suntheim September 2021

Summary

Strengthening the climate information architecture is paramount to promote transparency and global comparability of data and thus improve market confidence, safeguard financial stability, and foster sustainable finance. This note provides a conceptual framework around the provision of climate-related information, discusses the progress made to date, and points toward the way forward. A decisive, globally coordinated effort is needed to move forward on the three buildings blocks of a climate information architecture: (1) high-quality, reliable, and comparable data; (2) a globally harmonized and consistent set of climate disclosure standards; and (3) globally agreed upon principles for climate finance taxonomies and other classification approaches to align investments with climate goals.
