The Sustainable Investment Forum Europe, hosted by Climate Action in partnership with the UNEP Finance Initiative, brings together investment professionals looking to drive the shift to a sustainable and low-carbon economy.
Europe is continuing to cement itself as a leading sustainable finance market. Progress to adopt the key proposals of the EU Sustainable Finance Action Plan is rapidly underway and investors are increasingly working to incorporate sustainability into their strategies and portfolios. The Taskforce on Financial Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) is also pushing climate higher up the finance community agenda. But enormous efforts are still needed in the near-term future to reach the $100 billion/year global climate finance goal and to catalyse the $5-7 trillion required annually to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
