The project KliFin -Scanner (Climate finance product scanner for retail investors and banks) aims to sensitize retail investors and banks for climate friendly and climate risk in financial portfolios and thus to contribute to the decarbonization of the financial sector and the economy. The project focuses on retail investors, aiming to reduce the emissions connected with their investments in financial markets and as a consequence of this reducing the emissions of the economy. It follows a holistic approach, addressing all key stakeholders by influencing both the demand- and the offer-side of climate friendly saving products at the same time:
- Retail investors will be educated about publicly available information regarding the climate friendliness and climate risks of funds. Furthermore, they will be enabled to create informed climate friendly investment strategies that they can take to meetings with bank advisors.
- Bank advisors will get the tools to react on the demand by retail investors
