The Research Collaborative on Tracking Finance for Climate Action is a network, led by the OECD, of governments, research organisations and finance providers. It is designed to serve as a platform for identifying research priorities and gaps, sharing information, weaving a coherent narrative across what would otherwise be disparate research outputs, as well as communicating results to raise awareness.

Annual Research Collaborative Workshop

This workshop focused on initiatives to track finance and investments towards assessing their consistency with climate objectives. It gathered over 70 experts from research organisations, financial institutions and governments with the aim to provide institutional, country and international level perspectives on this topic.

“Exploring options to measure the climate consistency of real economy investments: the manufacturing industries in Norway”

This working paper  presents the results of the first of an intended series of pilot studies. It estimates investments and measures their consistency or inconsistency with climate change mitigation objectives based on two readily available reference points: the European Union Taxonomy for Sustainable Activities, and a 2°C scenario for the Nordic region from the International Energy Agency. The paper draws conclusions in terms of data and methods, as well as calls for further pilot studies to improve and scale up such analysis at international level, including in terms of using complementary reference points specifically aligned to the temperature goal of the Paris Agreement.
