This year, Finance for Tomorrow, an initiative by Paris EUROPLACE, and the United Nations Environmental Programme, Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) are joining forces to organise the Global Round Table and Climate Finance Day: 3 days on “innovation and impact” around the world. The two events will highlight the most innovative initiatives to accelerate the financing and development of the Paris Agreement and UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Climate Finance Day 2018
The 4th edition of Climate Finance Day will be driven by the ongoing and growing mobilisation of finance in favour of sustainable development in the world. This year’s event will also underscore the dynamics of global politics to honour the Paris Agreement and the EU action plan for more sustainable financing. Commitments and major achievements from private and public stakeholders in sustainable finance will be looked at.
This year, Climate Finance Day will focus on progress in central banks and control authorities to make the global financial system more environmentally friendly. Climate Finance Day will aim once again this year to accelerate commitments in the financial sector and to make a first assessment of initiatives that are already under way.
