3rd edition of the Climate Finance Day:

Acceleration!

The financial industry fully committed to fighting climate change

On the eve of the One Planet Summit, called for by the President of the Republic, the 2017 Climate Finance Day brought together, at the French Ministry of the Economy and Finance, close to 1,000 high-level international representatives of the financial industry, companies, regulatory and supervisory authorities, as well as development banks, non-governmental organizations and academia.

This third edition of the Climate Finance Day, focused on accelerating our efforts, highlighted the most innovative initiatives undertaken since COP 21 to strengthen the financial sector's involvement in combating climate change, financing the energy transition and the adaptation to global warming. The main tools of this transformation are improved transparency and risk analysis as well as the development of green financial instruments, and public-private financing.
