Many financial institutions are undertaking actions to support a net zero future: setting net zero targets, developing their own climate action plans, engaging companies on transition planning and calling on policymakers and regulators to develop stronger policy frameworks. 

This event will provide a view on climate change leadership for Banks from a number of different perspectives: leading industry organizations, regulators, multilateral development banks, and Banks themselves.

It will grapple with the challenges that Banks are facing in demonstrating leadership and how they are overcoming them and identifying opportunities. This includes issues such as a lack of harmonized regulatory standards, mainstreaming climate through banking practices, scaling up finance for climate solutions. It will focus on experiences of Banks in different regions drawing out similarities and differences.

For EBRD, the event will look to promote its own climate proposition for the finance sector – namely its Paris alignment approach and the Transition Planning approach it will use with its partner banks.

This is a follow up event from last-year’s ‘From ambition to transition’ panel.
