FT Climate Finance Summit: Scaling up Finance for Climate Action

OVERVIEW

The FT Climate Finance Summit: Scaling up Finance for Climate Action will explore the vital role of international finance in global efforts to combat climate change, as well as the risks and opportunities for businesses, financial markets and investors in the new climate economy.

A ‘quiet revolution’ is already underway – the value of capital being committed to green infrastructure investments is growing, and innovations such as green bonds and internal carbon pricing are becoming part of companies’ financing tool kit. Yet despite these efforts, climate finance remains marginal to international capital flows and inadequate for global needs.

Join a senior audience of leading green financiers, corporate decision makers, policy makers and investors to gain the bigger picture of how the full potential of the world’s capital markets can be scaled up for climate action.
