This paper aims to understand the role of today’s accounting requirements for financial intermediaries (banks and insurers), to be aware of their limitations and to underscore the need for reform in order to foster long-term and then low-carbon capital spending in Europe. The paper shows that International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) can affect long-term asset allocation of banks and insurance companies. International accounting standards do not differentiate between low and carbon intensive investment and do not take into account climate risks beforehand. To tackle these issues, we make some recommendations to promote long-term and low-carbon investment.
This paper analyses the drivers of French transport CO2 emissions over the period 1960-2017. A decomposition analysis is used to evaluate the relative contribution of five key drivers of passenger and freight transports emissions: transport demand, modal shift, vehicle load factor, energy efficiency and carbon intensity of the energy.
