Welcome to the Revolution: The inside story to the rise of green finance

28 Sep 2022
Main Stage

COP26 signalled that “Private Finance has woken up” to the climate crisis. Net Zero and Climate Change are now recognised at the Board Level and by Chief Executives in Financial Institutions. If every company, bank, asset manager, insurer and investor adjusts their business models, develops credible plans for the transition to a low-carbon, climate resilient future and then implements those plans, we are set for an unprecedent time of fast-paced changes to the way we historically think of Finance.
