Climate Finance Day settles down in Paris
Held for the first time in May 2015, at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, Climate Finance Day marked the launch of the financial sector’s campaign to tackle climate issues.
This movement, which culminated at the time of the COP21, has grown considerably since the adoption of the Paris Agreement. Today, a large number of banks, insurers and investors have adopted strategies to decarbonize portfolios, invest in renewable energies and develop new green financing solutions.
In 2015, the first edition of Climate Finance Day entitled “How to shift the trillions?” concentrated on the re-direction of capital flows towards a low-carbon economy. The second edition, organized with Casablanca Finance City Authority for the COP22, aimed at moving to action, in particular in Africa. This third edition of Climate Finance Day will focus on accelerating mobilisation and ongoing commitments.
To boost the financial industry’s participation in the fight against climate change, Climate Finance Day will from now on bring the leading players in this international mobilisation together for an annual
event in Paris
