The next session in our ‘path to net zero’ series explores the role of finance in climate change mitigation and adaptation. Our panel will delve into some of the initiatives, financial products and markets available to help industries and businesses in the transition to net zero, whilst also looking at some of the associated risks and challenges.
With the increasing impacts of climate change clearly visible around the world, the need to achieve Paris Agreement goals has never been so great. Yet turning aspiration into action cannot be done without mobilising trillions of dollars of climate finance – a key objective for the fast-approaching COP26.
