Network for Greening the Financial System (NGFS) Scenario Explorer hosted by IIASA

The Network for Greening the Financial System (NGFS) is a group of 65 central banks and supervisors and 12 observers committed to sharing best practices, contributing to the development of climate– and environment–related risk management in the financial sector and mobilizing mainstream finance to support the transition toward a sustainable economy.​

This Scenario Explorer is a web-based user interface for transition scenario results selected for the NGFS. This provides intuitive visualizations & display of timeseries data and download of the data in multiple formats. This Scenario Explorer hosts the NGFS scenarios, which were produced by NGFS Workstream 2 in partnership with an academic consortium from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), University of Maryland (UMD), Climate Analytics (CA) and Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich (ETH).

This work was made possible by grants from Bloomberg Philanthropies and ClimateWorks Foundation.​

The scenarios are generated by state-of-the-art well-established integrated assessment models (IAMs), namely GCAM, MESSAGE-GLOBIOM and REMIND-MAgPIE. These models allow the estimation of global and regional mitigation costs, the analysis of energy system transition characteristics, the quantification of investments required to transform the energy system, and the identification of synergies and trade-off of sustainable development pathways.
