The United States wants to increase its climate finance, according to the US Secretary of the Treasury

The United States wants to increase the volume of its climate finance, and work together with the international community to fight climate change, US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said on Tuesday.

“The climate issue, by its very nature, requires strong global cooperation. We have lost four important years, and we recognize that many of you have been at the forefront of change in your own country,” Ms. Yellen said during its first meeting with the Coalition of Finance Ministers for Climate Action, adding that the United States was happy to have joined the coalition last week.

“Ministries of finance have a vital role to play, and we have a lot to learn from each other on how to integrate climate into our financial planning and decision-making,” she said.

Ms. Yellen said the U.S. Treasury participates in various international forums and works through the U.S. Financial Stability Supervisory Board to understand and mitigate the risks that climate change poses to the stability of the financial system and to the economy. macroeconomics in the United States and beyond.

Ms. Yellen also indicated that she was happy to co-chair the Group for Sustainable Finance which has just been created by the G20. This group provides an important platform to tackle these kinds of issues and promote a financial system capable of supporting efforts to meet international climate and other sustainability goals.
