The sector is thus contributing at both national and international level to the realisation of the Paris climate goals. The commitments are not without obligation. The commitment of the financial sector will be monitored continuously and the agreements will be reassessed every five years. The Climate Agreement aims to cost-effectively reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 to 49% of the level recorded in 1990.

The financial sector wants to make a meaningful contribution to sustainability projects in a way that properly shapes the energy transition in the various economic sectors and society at large. The sector will also strengthen the cooperation between various kinds of financial institutions, including Invest-NL, in order to make finance more readily available for climate-friendly projects.

As laid down in the commitment, the four financial umbrella organisations (the Dutch Banking Association, the Dutch Association of Insurers, the Federation of Dutch Pension Funds and DUFAS) will organise working conferences on the measurement and direction of climate impact. This will involve the Sustainable Finance Platform. The aim is to share knowledge and experience, particularly knowledge regarding both the financing of sustainability projects and the measurement of the CO2 impact of loans and investments.
