Pierre Ducret, Board Member of Finance for Tomorrow and Co-Chair of FC4S said : “The IPCC report has shown more clearly than ever the need to “shift the trillions” for the fight against climate change. Accelerating actions is a priority for France and for Finance for Tomorrow. I am honored to have been appointed Co-chair of the Financial Centres for Sustainability Network. I consider this a great opportunity to strengthen international cooperation at a time of great uncertainty. The Network can play a central role to accelerate the achievement of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals.”
