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).

Manifest Climate Project Proposal (February 2023)
Note: This project proposal outlines proposed climate change monitoring services to interested credit unions. CCUA does not endorse any third-party provider; it is up to each credit union to determine which provider works best for them and meets their reporting objectives. CCUA welcomes additional proposals from other providers to offer as a reference to credit unions, as they consider how best to address future or potential regulatory requirements in climate change monitoring and risk analysis in their jurisdiction.
