December 11th invitation in Paris | “Mainstreaming!” in association with Climate Finance Day 2017

As Secretariat of the Climate Action in Financial Institutions Initiative, I4CE is pleased to invite you to the event:


Monday 11 December 2017, from 9:00 to 12:15

Organized by the Agence Française de Développement, the International Development Finance Club (IDFC) and the Climate Action in Financial Institutions Initiative,

and in association with Climate Finance Day 2017 


Pierre Mendes France Conference Center, Ministry for the Economy and Finance

139 Rue de Bercy, 75012 Paris


Since COP21 and the adoption of the Paris Agreement, a number of financial actors have taken significant and concrete measures to mainstream climate issues into their strategies and operations. Others are gearing up to join the movement. On this basis, the financial community is taking forward its action and is seeking to accelerate the necessary massive redirection of public and private financial flows towards sustainable, low-carbon and climate-resilient development pathways.

On Monday 11 December 2017 in Paris, in the context of the Climate Summit organized by the French Government, a day of exchanges on climate finance will gather the main actors from the international financial community. The Mainstreaming! event will take place in the morning and focus on the integration of climate change considerations by financial institutions worldwide. This will be followed in the afternoon and in the same premises by the Climate Finance Day, organized by Finance for Tomorrow, Paris EUROPLACE and the French Ministry for the Economy and Finance, and devoted to the most recent and promising innovations in regulation, financial products and services to accelerate climate-smart action.

The morning event will be devoted to Mainstreaming!

During COP21, financial institutions set up 5 Voluntary Principles for Climate Mainstreaming and launched the Climate Action in Financial Institutions Initiative. Two years on, how public and private financial actors from the North and South have mainstreamed climate considerations in practice? What headway has been achieved in strategies, climate risk management, financial products and tools, and in terms of transparency and accountability? What are the ambitions for the coming years? How can the initiative help all financial institutions act to make climate change a core business consideration?

In the context of the Climate Summit organized by the French Government on 12 December 2017, this event aims to show that climate mainstreaming by the financial community is possible and encourage new actors to join the movement.

    After Bonn and towards COP 29: the battle on finance and the role of financing plans for the transition

    Tense climate negotiations just ended in Bonn with limited progress on finance and the revised climate commitments under the Paris Agreement. During the opening ceremony of the sixtieth sessions of the subsidiary bodies (SB 60) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Simon Stiell –Executive Secretary– highlighted the need to “make serious progress on finance, the great enabler of climate action” and to aim for bolder, broader and inclusive third generation Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs 3.0) that “can serve as blueprints to propel economies and societies forward and drive more resilience”.

    EU election time: climate policy and finance challenges under scrutiny

    This weekend, citizens across the EU head to the polls. Many expect a swing to the right, in stark contrast to the “green wave” of 2019. In Brussels, leaders are looking ahead to a five-year mandate dominated by questions of security and competitiveness.  In these turbulent times, what is the future of Europe’s flagship climate package, the Green Deal? The Green Deal and the Fit for 55 package gave us the regulatory framework – but implementation requires investment. I4CE’s flagship EU Climate Investment Deficit report shows that climate spending must double to make the 2030 target achievable.

    Carbon pricing revenues: their role in financing the climate transition

    Last month, the Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, Simon Stiell, stressed how important this and next year are for the achievement of the Paris Agreement and called for “a quantum leap in climate finance” ahead of the Spring Meetings of the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund. Indeed, with emissions required to peak before 2025, our window of opportunity is rapidly closing to keep 1.5°C within reach. More and better finance is urgently needed. Carbon pricing policies and their revenues are part of the tools available that can help fill the climate finance gap.
