COP24: Momentum for Innovation in the Capital Markets

Katowice, Poland
16:30-18:00, 7 December 2018

Next Generation of Investors

Venue: MDB Joint Pavilion

EIT Climate-KIC is at COP24 to highlight the importance of catalysing a shift in the financial sector to achieve transformative change to meet the challenge of climate change.

As Europe’s main climate innovation initiative, EIT Climate-KIC will be sharing how we work to bring the right partners together at the right time, to address how to create systemic impact in the financial system through innovation. With finance as a ‘systems driver’, representatives will discuss how the organisation is working with the climate innovation community to find the best ways to ‘nudge’ the financial system across its portfolio of activities in four work areas – urban transitions, sustainable land use, sustainable production systems, and decision metrics and finance.

This panel will discuss how integrating material ESG (environmental, social and governance) data into the investment process is about taking a more holistic approach to understanding the environmental and social impact —both positive and negative— that an investment can have on the wider economy.
