The Climate Policy Council invites all to a seminar May 24 to deepen the discussion on the growing role of the financial sector in contributing towards climate change mitigation and adaptation. The Climate Policy Council revealed in their 2022 review that today’s overall policy is not enough for us to reach the climate goal set out for 2045. The transition must accelerate.
That both public and private investments are increasingly directed towards fossil-free solutions is crucial for the transition as to ensure that society is not locked into a continued dependence on fossil fuels. This places high demands on policy to both direct public investment correctly and to contribute to ensuring good conditions for private investment, among other things by creating systems for risk-sharing. The Climate Policy Council has therefore asked the Sustainable Finance Lab to produce a report that examines the role that policy can and should play in the work of directing the financial sector towards solutions that promote progressive climate change transition.
Sustainable Finance Lab has contributed to the report and Director Kent Eriksson will together with Vice-Directors Mark Sanctuary and Joakim Sandberg, hold a presentation of the report ‘Policies for Sustainable Finance to Fund the Climate Transition’. A panel discussion will be held.
