The role of investors in mitigating climate change
Victor Galaz, Deputy Director of the Stockholm Resilience Centre, will deliver the keynote “Finance and the Earth System.” Dr Galaz will discuss work showing how a handful of international investors are linked to economic activities that influence the stability of some of the world’s largest forests, and hence the global climate.
The first morning session will examine the extent to which investors are on track to meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement. In particular, this session will look at the role of science-based targets. Eric Usher, Head of the UN Environment Programme’s Finance Initiative (UNEP-FI), will address panellists on the “Principles of Responsible Banking.”
