The role of financial institutions in encouraging sustainable commodities and climate smart investments

Clock icon 11:30 - 12:30
The objective of sustainable finance is broadly to achieve economic growth whilst reducing environmental impact, minimising waste, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The expected transition to a lower-carbon economy is estimated to require around US$1 trillion of investments a year for the foreseeable future. Financial institutions therefore have an important role to play in promoting sustainable development and re-orientating the global economy towards more sustainable investments.

In this session, the speakers will give us an insight into: 

  • Has sustainability finally started to take centre stage within financial institutions? 
  • Which sustainable financing options are now available?
  • How are investors taking climate impacts into their decision making?
