Sustainable Investment Forum Europe

March 12

This text is taken from the UNEP Finance Initiative


“On 12 March 2019, Climate Action and UNEP Finance Initiative are hosting the Sustainable Investment Forum Europe in Paris, France.

The Sustainable Investment Forum Europe brings together investment professionals looking to drive the move to a sustainable and low-carbon economy. Last year’s event attracted leading asset owners managing more than €3 trillion, as well as major asset managers, policymakers, banks, think-tanks and non-profit organisations.

Financing the Shift to a Sustainable Economy

Europe is continuing to cement itself as a leading sustainable finance market. Progress to adopt the key proposals of the EU Sustainable Finance Action Plan is rapidly underway and investors are increasingly working to incorporate sustainability into their strategies and portfolios.

The Taskforce for Financial Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) is also pushing climate higher up the finance community agenda. But enormous efforts are still needed in the near-term future to reach the $100 billion/year global climate finance goal and to catalyse the $5-7 trillion required annually to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.”
