Euro zone banks not meeting ECB’s climate risk goals

FRANKFURT (Reuters) – No big euro zone lender meets the European Central Bank’s expectations on climate and environmental risk, the ECB said on Monday, calling for a quicker adaption of its supervisory expectations.

“Banks have taken initial steps towards incorporating climate-related risks, but none is close to meeting all supervisory expectations,” the ECB said in a statement.

“Only one-third of banks have plans in place that are at least broadly adequate, and half won’t have completed implementation of their plans by the end of 2022,” it added.
