Green Asset Ratio

From Open Risk Manual


The Green Asset Ratio (GAR) is based on the EU Sustainable Finance Taxonomy and is a Paris aligned ratio that can be used to identify whether banks are financ­ing sustainable activities, such as those consistent with the Paris agreement goals.

The GAR shows the proportion of assets that are environmentally sustainable (Green Asset) and contribute substantially to the objectives of climate change mitigation or climate change adaptation or that enable other activities to contribute substantially to those objectives.
