Trillions of dollars are needed annually to meet global goals for sustainable development and the Paris Climate Accords. In light of these global commitments, policy makers and investors are struggling to integrate climate financing strategies at the scale commensurate with the opportunity. This discussion will focus on practical approaches in finance, policy and entrepreneurship to accelerate integrated investment solutions. Participants will gain an understanding of the green finance landscape, as well as concrete examples of solutions that fall across various investor interests along the risk-return spectrum.
