The NGFS organized a full-day conference to present its first comprehensive report on Wednesday 17th April, 2019 in Paris. The conference gathered its 36 members and 6 observers, representing the 5 continents.

The lesson drawn from the first 16 months of NGFS activity is that climate change presents significant financial risks that can only be mitigated through early and orderly transition. There is a need for global collective leadership and action across countries. The NGFS, as a coalition of the willing and a voluntary-based forum, is acknowledging this and its report is proposing first recommendations aiming at facilitating the role of the financial sector in achieving the objectives of the 2015 Paris Agreement.

In the morning, the conference was restricted to central bankers and supervisors –NGFS members and non NGFS members-. In the afternoon, the event gathered the regulators, their stake-holders and the representatives of the financial industry and was opened to the press.”
