QCOSTARICA – The Banco Central de Costa Rica (BCCR) – Costa Rica’s Central Bank – announced that by December 2021 it will finalize a roadmap for the implementation of its commitments towards integrating climate change and environmental considerations into its decision-making processes.

The BCCR says the roadmap covers the development and publication of information and statistics, the integration of sustainability considerations into monetary policy, the incorporation of climate-related risks into financial stability assessments and the gradual greening of the Central Bank’s international reserves.
