Canadian Credit Union Association

Background:

At CCUA’s 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM), a member resolution was adopted to establish a working group to develop and publicize measurements to track and disclose the carbon emissions impact of credit unions’ portfolios.

The Climate Change Disclosure Working Group (CCDWG) was established by CCUA in response to the member resolution and met regularly in 2020-2021 to explore the emerging issue of climate-related financial disclosure and to raise awareness of climate-related risks, public policy implications, and industry leading climate disclosure frameworks.

CCUA intends to build on the work of the CCDWG and operationalize the member resolution on behalf of the credit union system by evolving the working group and its mandate into the Climate Action Working Group (CAWG).
