Towards the United-Nations COP26 on climate and COP15 on biodiversity, world leaders have the opportunity to take action in order to reach carbon-neutrality by 2050. They must raise the ambition to achieve the Paris Agreement objectives, a condition to reach the Sustainable Development Goals. With this dynamic, the Paris financial centre invites you to the Climate Finance Day, not only to keep mainstreaming sustainable finance, but mainly to search for the real impact that will enable both the transition and thus the recovery of our global economy.
The 7th edition will be dedicated to “Sustainable finance: it’s time for a real impact!”
The financial sector has produced tools and processes to integrate extra-financial criteria in its activities. Institutions have adopted commitments while professionals are improving their skills. However, they must collectively aim higher to participate in the economic efforts of the transition. There is a profound and immediate need to integrate purpose at the center of finance, as a political engine. It is necessary to create the future opportunities for alignment of financial flows. Moreover, seeking a real impact is the only way to respond to the citizens’ aspirations and to build economic resilience against climate risks.
The Paris financial center is mobilized to enable the transformation of the real economy and to foster a quick economic recovery, in Europe and beyond. Investors, bankers, entrepreneurs and public authorities are coordinated to share this ambition and make sure that those goals result in concrete actions. Join us to explore how impact finance will provide the tools for a significant shift towards a better future.
Registration will open soon!
