Sustainable finance: How to reboot the European real economy?
While the world economy is experiencing an unprecedent challenging situation, the Green New Deal, if appropriately designed and funded, could be the post-crisis rebooting plan driving the European economy towards a low-carbon and resilient pattern.
Spearheading financial innovations for the green transition, the European financial industry should mobilize to support the implementation of the Green Deal and serve the needs of the real economy.
The 6th Climate Finance Day will be fully dedicated to these issues with the theme “Sustainable finance : how to reboot the European real economy?”
This year’s edition will focus on the EU policies as well as local issues. It will also showcase public and private financial mechanisms and tools available or to be designed in order to meet the needs of the different sectors of the European economy.
We are closely monitoring developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic and will be prepared to find an alternative, if the situation will not allow for an in-person conference.
Each year, a number of side events are organized around the Climate Finance Day, grouped under the label “Paris for Tomorrow week”. More than just a “Climate Week”, the week-long series of events explores issues related to both financing and achieving the climate objectives and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDgs). This whole week will gather in Paris from October 26 to 30 the financial and business community as well as civil society,local and public authorities.
Finance for Tomorrow provides a label to its members as well as institutions, that organize side events dedicated to green and sustainable finance and more broadly climate and sustainable development issues during the week (except on October 29).
