Ireland's 4th Annual Climate Finance Week
A highlight of a six month Irish ‘Road to COP26’ campaign, the theme of this year’s fourth Climate Finance Week Ireland is ‘Investing in a Net Zero Future’ And as we approach COP26 in November, private finance is required to help all companies realign their business models towards net-zero goals, funding transformative technology and innovations. Indeed, private finance has a vital part to play in the shift to a greener, more resilient economy and a fair climate transition for society, turning the billions committed to climate investment through public channels into trillions of total climate investment.
Beyond Climate – the ESG agenda
As in previous years, CFWI21 will continue to articulate the risks and opportunities associated with the ESG agenda across banking, asset management, insurance, funds administration and asset owners. Events since the turn of 2020 have emphasized the interdependence of our economic and financial systems with nature and society and have strengthened the case for proper risk identification by demonstrating the impact of ESG risks on the financial system. During CFWI21, social and biodiversity issues which have in recent years moved from the ESG margins to the mainstream will also be explored. Along with data, fintech and disclosure issues, both topics will be key themes of discussion during CFWI21.
CFWI21 is an output of government’s Ireland for Finance Action Plan 2021.
