Financing The Future: Scaling Low Carbon Projects

April 19
14:00-15:00 BST 2017

If the Paris Agreement is to be successfully implemented, trillions of dollars of investment is urgently required to develop a wide range of low carbon technologies. Many green innovations remain at an early stage of development, carry high investment risk or may not be available to the developing regions that require them most urgently, presenting a suite of new challenges to the investment community.

Public and private stakeholders need to come together like never before to develop innovative new approaches to scaling low carbon solutions- from creating new financial products like green bonds and implementing consistent green regulations, to adopting blended finance models and mission oriented research and development programmes.

This webinar, held ahead of the Innovate4Climate event in Barcelona in May 2017, united key public and private investors to discuss the latest progress on scaling low carbon projects.
