Moving beyond fear to action: financial markets and COP27
As COP27 approaches, it is clearer than ever that a coordinated, global effort is required to mitigate and adapt to climate and ecological change, and break the tragedy of the commons. To tackle this issue, OMFIF’s Sustainable Policy Institute is convening a high-level roundtable discussion in Egypt as COP27 begins.
The roundtable will assess current commitments to net zero, how to steer global incentivisation towards solving the climate crisis and what financial markets can do to prevent further resource depletion. Consideration will also be given to the geopolitical climate. Participants will discuss solutions for moving government policy, capital and the real economy to transition, and how financial markets can further support sustainable investments in new energy sources.
