Acceleration of the net-zero carbon economy touches every sector, and the financial sector is the foundation of an economy. Financial institutions are facing significant pressure from shareholders, clients, customers, and governments to act on climate change. At the same time, it opens a new range of opportunities from scaling up low-carbon investments, restricting financing of high-emitting activities to supporting carbon-intensive industries to transition to net-zero.
Join us on July 11th and listen to the professionals at the Rocky Mountain Institute’s Center for Climate-Aligned Finance and the Green Finance Institute to learn more about the efforts to support financial institutions in restructuring their strategies and expectations as well as delivering the financial services in order to move the economy rapidly to a resilient, sustainable future.
