Abstract

Harnessing the US$300 trillion in the global financial system will be essential to make a successful transition to a prosperous, low-carbon economy. The UNEP Inquiry has uncovered a ‘quiet revolution’ in policy and market innovations to mobilise capital and mainstream sustainability factors in banking, capital markets, insurance and investment. This webinar will present the findings of its global report, “The Financial System We Need”, and outline opportunities in 2016, including in Italy.
