Webinar I Climate Investment & Sustainable Finance: What progress and insights for the CEE region?

Webinars - By : Louise KESSLER, PhD

 

As countries move forward to implement national climate strategies, National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) and more broadly Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), there is an increasing need to understand how to transform investment needs into capital raising and financing plans. Today countries in Central Europe are moving forward to collect the information and data to support this process.

 

This webinar looked at the emerging insights from the CEE countries and how they are beginning to track domestic climate investment and finance. Experts will also discuss how CEE countries are integrating this into the climate policy planning process and implementation.

About this Webinar Series:

In March 2019, I4CEin partnership with WiseEuropa and NewClimate Institute launched an EU Climate Investment and Finance Tracking Group at an EUKI-supported workshop in Berlin. The objective of this group is to connect and foster the exchange of knowledge and expertise between different types of actors (research, think-tanks, government, among others) on the finance and investment topics related to the low-carbon resilient transformation of European countries. Part of the EUKI-sponsored “Landscape of Climate Finance : Promoting debate on climate finance flows in Central Europe”, the contact group has a specific objective of increasing the participation of representatives from Central and Eastern European countries in these discussions.

 

To continue the discussions begun in Berlin in March 2019, the project consortium proposes the organization of two webinars in November and December 2019. This corresponds with the publication of new research related to landscape tracking work in France, Germany and Czechia.

 

This series of webinars is financed by the European Climate Initiative (EUKI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). It is the overarching goal of the EUKI to foster climate cooperation within the European Union (EU) in order to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. The opinions put forward in this workshop are the sole responsibility of the organizers and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).

    Maximising benefits of carbon pricing through carbon revenue use: A review of international experiences

    Carbon pricing policies and their revenues are part of the tools available that can help fill the climate finance gap. With raising revenues from carbon taxes and emission trading systems (ETSs) that have tripled since the Paris Agreement, and an upward trend that could continue in the medium-term, ‘how to use carbon revenues’ has become a crucial question. This report, prepared as an activity of the EU-funded European Union Climate Dialogues (EUCDs) project, aims to inform policymakers and practitioners on lessons learned and ways forward on the use of carbon revenues, with a comprehensive approach based on a review of international experiences.

    I4CE’s recommendations to the European Banking Authority on prudential transition plans

    The European Banking Authority (EBA) is clarifying how the banks should frame their “transition plan” as required by the EU prudential regulation. The transition plan is the bank’s strategic roadmap to prepare for the transition to a sustainable economy as framed by the jurisdictions they operate in, including an EU climate-neutral economy. It has been introduced in several EU regulatory frameworks, including as a disclosure requirement arising from the CSRD. The prudential framework and the EBA are focusing on a specific angle: how the banks plan to manage their financial risks related to the transition. EBA’s framing of these plans will be key to determine whether the banks will manage their financial risks consistently with the broader need of financing the transition to a low-carbon economy.
