WEBINAR - The Just Transition Insights into the Finance Roadmap
The roadmap towards financing a just transition seeks to make explicit the link between actions in the financial system and the realisation of broader national goals of sustainability and socio-economic development. The country’s roadmap will be a function of its national context and climate action ambitions, and aims to develop a long term systemic plan to enhance the ability of the financial eco system to mainstream environmental, social, governance factors (ESG); sustainable development goals (SDG’s); and just transition goals into decision making and capital allocation. In South Africa, an additional fundamental aim of the roadmap will be to mobilise off shore public sector funding and private local capital for such investment given the limited fiscal space.

This seminar will discuss the bottom up approach used in the research process, what could work within the current financial system, and where changes to the financial ecosystem are needed to effectively support a just transition. Research commission by TIPS will be presented on topics that help to unpack the finance roadmap and provide insights on scale and replicability of projects; financial instruments; social indicators, and corporate awareness, outreach and communication.
