Smart finance for low-carbon transition
The low carbon transition represents a significant economic challenge, requiring the complementary actions of public authorities, economic actors and financial institutions. On the public side, policies are needed to put a price on carbon, such as cap and trade or a carbon tax, as well as an overall framework that fosters long-term decisions. Transition-conscious companies must develop or seek out technologies and deploy new solutions and products. Developing smarter finance matters for the transition beyond mere financing.
