13 November | 18:30 – 20:00
The main challenge of sustainable finance today is the massive gap between sustainability objectives and the current allocation of private and public financial capital. Development institutions have a crucial role to play to catalyse and scale the global market for adaptation. In this respect, there is growing agreement on the need to enhance the traditional financial risk-return metrics by accounting for climate physical risk and energy transition risk. Moreover, we need metrics of impact to account for the contribution of a portfolio to climate mitigation and adaptation objectives.
The session provides actionable information for both supply and demand side on current progress driven by development organizations and professionals of sustainability, as well as the contribution of academic research in addressing the major challenges ahead.
Speakers from Climate-KIC, University of Zurich, IDB, EIB, Acclimatise, Beyond Ratings.
