High-Level Plenary: Accelerating greener investment: the role of taxonomies, asset managers and institutional investors, regions and cities
Oct 8th, 10:05 am – 11:30 am CEST
To help direct capital to where it is needed, policymakers are developing sustainable finance taxonomies and definitions at regional (EU) and national level. Increasing numbers of asset managers and institutional investors are investing in sustainable infrastructure. But despite increasing ambition, new approaches are needed to reallocate capital and scale-up investment. At sub-national level, given that regions and cities are responsible for around 65% of climate and environment-related public investment in the OECD, decisions of regional authorities and mayors will be critical to ensuring a green, sustainable recovery.
CPI Associate Director Bella Tonkonogy will participate in this discussion.
