One Great George Street, Westminster, London SW1P 3AA
/Greening the financial system
To achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement and our wider environmental ambitions, all finance will need to incorporate the financial risks and opportunities presented by climate change and other environmental challenges. There is increasing international recognition of the need to integrate climate and environmental factors into mainstream financial decision-making. Alongside the private sector, central banks and supervisors are also taking action to address the far-reaching financial risks associated with climate change and other environmental risks. This session will explore existing and emerging efforts to green the financial system and the UK’s systemically important role as a major global financial centre.
