Mobilising Finance to Tackle the Climate Crisis

- Climate at the Core of Investment Strategy

The Paris Agreement spells out the key role of financial services, requiring signatories to make flows of finance consistent with low greenhouse gas emissions and climate-resilient development. How can green finance both support the transition to a sustainable, low carbon world and help financial institutions and their clients manage climate-related and other environmental risks? What key factors will determine the success of the finance sector’s ability to tackle the climate emergency?
