8th Edition of the Climate Finance Day
The Climate Finance Day is a major annual gathering which, since COP21, has undertaken to mobilize the world’s financial industry to make further commitments to combat climate change. CFD also attempts to survey and review the main achievements to date and showcase the most innovative solutions implemented by public and private actors to reach the goals set in the Paris Agreement. It also contributes to the French government’s willingness to implement tools and frameworks in the continuity of the One Planet Summits.
The IPCC have made it clear in its last report: we can halve emissions by 2030 but the time for action is now. Good news, the experts ensure “there is sufficient global capital and liquidity to close investment gaps”. Accelerated and equitable climate action in mitigating and adapting to climate change impacts is critical to sustainable development. Financing climate action is thus a priority for the COP 27.
We are now at the turning point, halfway on the pathway to reach the 2030 Agenda and the climate objectives. Hundreds of pledges and commitments have been made by the financial sector. It is time to take a step back and make a mid-term evaluation on its contribution to these goals. We need to emphasize and scale up concrete game-changing solutions that have been developed so far on transition and adaptation.
The 8th edition will be dedicated to “Financial solutions for a sustainable future”
This 8th edition of the Climate Finance Day will be dedicated to financial solutions enabling and accelerating transition and adaptation actions. We expect financial players to report on the actions implemented since 2015 and to present action plans for the years to come. What concrete solutions the financial sector can provide to strengthen and mainstream resilience and to accompany the transition of the real economy? How to build trust and demonstrate accountability of the financial actors’ actions? How to accelerate?
Joins us on the 27th of October 2022, in a renewed format of the Climate Finance Day, to explore the financial solutions to build a sustainable future!
The Paris for Tomorrow Week
Each year, a number of side events are organized around the Climate Finance Day, grouped under the label “Paris for Tomorrow week”. More than just a “Climate Week”, the week-long series of events explores issues related to both financing and achieving the climate objectives and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDgs).
This whole week will gather in Paris from October 25 to 29 the financial and business community as well as civil society,local and public authorities.
Finance for Tomorrow provides a label to its members as well as institutions, that organize side events dedicated to green and sustainable finance and more broadly climate and sustainable development issues during the week (except on October 26).
Launched in June 2017 as a branch of Paris EUROPLACE, Finance for Tomorrow is an initiative whose aim is to make green and sus- tainable finance a driving force in developing the Paris Financial Centre and positioning Paris as the leading financial centre on these issues.
Members of Finance for Tomorrow are signatories of a shared charter with the goal of redirecting financial flows of capital toward a low-carbon and inclusive economy, in line with the Paris Agreement and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The initiative brings together more than 80 members and international observers representing the entire financial ecosystem (banks, investors, insurers, companies, professional bodies, extra-financial rating agencies, consultancies, think tanks, NGOs...), as well as municipalities (the City Paris and the Paris Region) and public authorities (the Ministries for the Economy & Finance and of the Ecological & Inclusive Transition, as well as the French Central Bank).
