Now in its 8th year, the event will gather 600+ of the most influential national and local policy makers, UN agencies, business leaders, investors and international NGOs to meet, share knowledge and lead by example towards the full achievement of the Paris Agreement’s ambitious climate goals.
Organised in partnership with the UNEP Finance Initiative (UNEP-FI) and building on the success of the 2016 edition, the Forum will welcome over 400 attendees representing asset owners and managers, commercial banks, development banks, private venture capital, technology developers, mayors and national policy makers all looking to drive innovation and collaboration.
With global governments now committed to action national plans to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius, the pressure is on for world economies to now move away from fossil fuels and towards low-carbon technologies, which requires significant investment across almost all economic sectors including energy, transport, agriculture and, construction.
Driving increasing levels of climate finance will define one of the global challenges of our era, and with an annual investment gap of over $70 billion to fill, the race is on to transform global financial systems and make these investments viable.
The UN estimates that investment in the range of $5 trillion to $7 trillion will be needed by 2050 – Want to play your part in financing a low-carbon future? Here is the place to do it!
