Reducing GHG emissions and adapting to the consequences of climate change imply financial investments. On-going international standardisation developments on climate finance will contribute to the implementation of the Paris Agreement. Properly developed standards will help investors channel their investments into green projects that manage climate-related financial risks and help achieve environmental targets. The development of standards on climate resilience will support the EU Strategy on adaptation to climate change and the deployment of climate resilient infrastructure in the EU.

Our goal is to build resilience in European standards in the face of climate change and ensure that investments are channelled in the best possible way for the environment.

Activities:

  • Contribute to the first draft framework international standard for assessing and reporting investments and financing activities related to climate change
  • Contribute to European and international standardisation developments related to adaptation to climate change
  • Provide expertise on investments, financing and climate change for activities related to climate change
  • Ensure consistency between standards on climate finance and green investments

ECOS contributes to:

  • ISO/TC 207: Environmental management
  • CEN-CENELEC Adaptation to Climate Change Coordination Group (ACC-CG)

Standardisation requests from the European Commission and EFTA

  • M/526: Implementation of the EU strategy on adaptation to climate change
