The Sustainable Investment Forum – the largest finance-focused event taking place during New York Climate Week, is back for its second edition on 19 September 2017.
Building on the success of 2016’s edition, the Forum will welcome over 350 attendees representing asset owners and managers, commercial banks, development banks, private venture capitalists, technology developers, mayors and national policy makers all looking to drive investment in green innovation.
With global governments now committed to action national plans to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius, the pressure is on for world economies to now move away from fossil fuels and towards low-carbon technologies, which requires significant investment across almost all economic sectors including energy, transport, agriculture and, construction.
Driving increasing levels of climate finance will define one of the global challenges of our era, and with an annual investment gap of over $70 billion to fill, the race is on to transform global financial systems and make these investments viable.
The UN estimates that investment in the range of $5 trillion to $7 trillion will be needed by 2050 – Want to play your part in financing a low-carbon future? Here is the place to do it!
