Aligning finance for the net zero economy: new ideas from leading thinkers

EIT Climate-KIC has partnered with UNEP FI to produce this ‘thought leadership’ series, which aims to inspire financial actors worldwide to move from risk to alignment, challenge current assumptions around climate alignment and develop ideas and concepts on how alignment can best be achieved.

We hope to encourage stakeholders that a proactive climate response is not only about disclosing risks, but also about investing in green opportunities that can enable the low emissions societies of the future. This series convenes innovators and industry experts to provoke discussion, challenge the status quo and guide the transformation of business and finance towards a sustainable future.

UNEP FI and EIT Climate-KIC present the 3rd and 4th papers of this Thought Leadership Series (live online from 3pm Berlin time, or afterwards on demand):

#3. Innovation and Tranformation: What It Will Take to Finance Net Zero

The third paper in this series will be presented by Richard Roberts and John Elkington, who explore the fundamental shift in the purpose and practice of finance – as well as the policies that determine the “rules of the game” – required to align our economy with a 1.5°C Low Energy Demand (LED) scenario.

#4. Finance 2030: A Time Travel Exercise

The fourth paper is from Jakob Thomä and Anne Schoenauer, who present a thought experiment into the key characteristics that will define the finance sector in 2030 in response to the economic transition arising from climate risks, public health challenges and economic and societal transformation.
