Lagarde Says Most Banks Fall Short on Climate Risk


Finance ministers from the Group of 20 nations aimed to deliver momentum to the global effort on climate change during a meeting this weekend in Venice, Italy. At a conference on Sunday, key speakers included U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and International Monetary Fund Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva.

“A minimum first step on carbon pricing is a regular stocktaking of measures by the G-20 countries to assess progress toward mitigation commitments,” said Kristalina Georgieva, the managing director of the International Monetary Fund.
