The aim of this competition is to address the lack of focus on climate and environmental risk (CER) in the financial services industry as part of net-zero carbon ambitions. It is looking to demonstrate and deploy innovative solutions that integrate climate and environmental factors into financial services.

The industry is defined in broad terms and includes public investment vehicles, banking, project finance, insurance, and asset management. Climate and environmental variables cover the range of data that track changes in weather, emissions, pollution, biodiversity, and natural assets.
